CaribSea Instant Aquarium Freshwater Live Substrate - Crystal River

CaribSea's Instant Aquarium Crystal River Substrate takes all of the guesswork out of creating a new tank. This gravel substrate is packed with living, water-purifying bacteria, state of the art clarifier, and a complete water conditioner.

  • Live freshwater aquarium substrate for easy tank start-up
  • Pre-rinsed & populated with beneficial, water-purifying bacteria
  • pH neutral, will not increase carbonate hardness


Instant Aquarium substrates immediately begin the cycling process for new water, preventing new-tank syndrome and suppressing the growth of nuisance algae. Its complete water conditioner detoxifies metals, eliminates ammonia, reduces nitrates and nitrites, neutralizes chlorine and chloramines, and provides a protective slime coat to reduce unhealthy fish stress. All you need to do is add tap water!

Coverage: Crystal River substrate is about 95 lb/cubic foot. The amounts below are approximate amounts needed to create 1" depth by aquarium size.

  • 20 gallons (approx. 2 sq. feet) - 16 pounds
  • 55 gallons (approx. 4 sq. feet) - 32 pounds
  • 125 gallons (approx. 9 sq. feet) - 72 pounds
