What is proper coral pink sand usage in a freshwater aquarium?


Answer by  DDragicevic (172)

It is essential for the breeding of highly priced shrimp, i.e. freshwater melon shrimp. The shrimp couples would only procreate in an environment properly designed for a romantic atmosphere, otherwise no little shrimp at all.

Using coral pink sand in a freshwater tank will raise your pH balance to a level that is suitable for African Cichlids. It is better than using a powder because it cannot raise pH to deadly levels if too much product is used.

Wash the pink coral sand. Add 1 to 1 1/2" uniformly to the bottom of the tank. Every 2-4 weeks skim the fish waste from the top l;ayer of sand, and every 8-16 weeks half the sand bed should be stirred to release trapped gases.

In freshwater aquarium proper pink sand is not necessary. But pink sand gives much better look for your aquarium, even if there is no fish in it.
