Removing multi cure stain from sand (malachite green methelyne blue)

Recommended Posts

I wanted to share this because I didn't find it anywhere online.

I bought caribsea super naturals crystal river sand, it wasn't cheap, and multicure stained it.

I saturated the stained sand with a bleach solution and overnight it went back to white.

It'll be hit with a super dose of prime once a day for a few days until the bleach smell goes away and then put back in the tank.

 

Hopefully this helps someone.

I would treat with prime for 3 weeks then after 3 weeks rinse it under a tape for two hours then re treat with prime that's the safest way to get rid of bleach what u did was a big risk but I know why its all good

10 minutes of flushing with water constantly and a 4x dose of prime over 2 days. Then 10 minutes more of flushing and a 4x dose of prime over 2 days. Now in tank with a 4x dose of prime.

 

2 days later and the fish are all happy
