PRODUCT: Unipac Limpopo sand

Image
10 minutes in by David Raynham, on Flickr

DESCRIPTION - A mix of black, grey and light grey sand particles

PRESENTATION - excellent. Looks well under aquarium lighting.

EASE OF CLEANING - excellent. Quick rinse for a few minutes per half a bucket full and it's done.

VALUE FOR MONEY - excellent. I paid £20 for 25kg at my LFS. One of the cheaper Unipac sands.

OVERALL OUT OF 10 - 10/10

PROS - Nice, clean product. Do residue pollutes the aquarium if disturbed by the fish. Big enough particles to fall straight back down to the surface but small enough to still be able to be moved around by all the fish.

CONS - None that i can think of.

COMMENTS - Very reasonably priced for proper aquarium sand. I have used this sand in a few of my tanks now and alot of them were planted. Lends itself well to planting aswell. Detritus isn't really noticeable with this product when comparing it to something like play sand. Also available in this range of sands from Unipac is Senegal and Congo.

Weathered lime stone. I have seen some in B&Q, it is the most common stone for a rockery due to some rockery plants slinging to it and absorbing the minerals.

I want some too. :(
