Correct color for Coral Sand?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I recently bought some crushed coral sand under the impression that it was a fairly white substrate (I have never used it before)

Is the photo below the normal colour for coral sand in daylight?

Thanks in advance :)

I have seen similar colouration of old coral sand however this one looks to be very brown.. I have found that you can can clean coral sub by either sun bleaching and thorough wash or in extreme cases plain bleach. if you do use bleach make sure you rinse thoroughly and then leave to dry in the sun and rinse again. if this does not turn white I don't know what else to suggest.

Regards

John

It is wet in the photo if that helps, thanks for the advice I want to get the tank set up very soon so I'm not sure I have the time to bleach 80kg of sand haha I may mix 20kg of a whiter product in with it at a later date

Cheers
