What type of system would I use Fiji Pink in? Fiji Pink is a great deep sand bed system substrate that has a unique look with pink flecks throughout. Ideal Live Reef Sand For: Berlin Systems, Plenum Systems, Nitrate Reduction Beds, Fish Tanks, Reef Tanks and Sumps & Refugiums.
General Use: For best results, use at least 1 pound of AragAlive! per gallon of seawater. For deep sand beds use 2 pounds per gallon. Do not rinse. AragAlive! may also be used to seed CaribSea’s dry aragonite products. AragAlive! compresses new tank cycle time and suppresses initial ammonia spike. Live rocks and most invertebrates may be placed in aquarium immediately. However, gradually introduce fish within the first 3 weeks, and do not exceed one inch of fish per gallons of water during this time.
Berlin Systems: The most suitable substrates are AragAlive! Fiji Pink. Use 1 pound per gallon. Place live rock on top covering the least amount of sand as possible. Use small reef friendly hermit crabs, shrimp, serpent stars, sea cucumbers, and other benthic animals to avoid detritus accumulations.
For Deep Nitrate Reduction Beds in Display Aquariums use AragAlive! Fiji Pink Add substrate to a depth of 3 to 5 inches (2 to 3 pounds per gallon). Place base or live rock so as to cover the least amount of the substrate as possible. It is especially desirable to incorporate burrowing and sand sifting fish and invertebrates for optimum health of these systems.
Warning! Placing new substrates over the top of an established substrate bed can be damaging to aquatic life. Gently mix new material into the existing bed with fingers. For added safety, this process can be done in sections, over the course of a few days.
