Aragasnow - 0.5mm Tonga Special Pink - 0.8mm Miniflakes - 2.0mm Mesoflakes - 2.7mm Reefflakes - 3.0mm Reefflakes Grand Select - 4.5mm
 
Composition
Composed of pure aragonite flakes, calcareous algae, juvenile seashells, coral fragments and other marine organisms. Highly rich in calcium, magnesium, strontium, carbonate and other trace elements essential for the growth of fishes, sps and lps stony corals, crustaceans, and all other aquatic organisms.  
No Impurities 
Each batch of Tropic Eden Premium Grade Aragonite Reef Substrates is carefully gathered, processed and inspected at the sites of collection, and thus is completely free of any impurities or harmful materials.  
Precisely Graded
Three steps of expert sieving to even sizes, completely sorted into well defined aragonite flakes and grains.
 
Benefits
Maximizes Filtration Capacity. Enormous surface area and internal space houses large Quantities of beneficial nitrifying/denitrifying bacteria and millions of microbes. Massive buffering capability ensures a stable alkalinity and pH level at around 8.2 in seawater and cichlid aquariums. Quickly creates a natural biological balance which discourages the growth of nuisance algae.  
Easy to Use
Ready to use, minimal rinsing required.


Filling Your Aquarium To start setting up your aquarium, first add substrate to the aquarium for a depth of about 3 to 6 inches depending on the particular setup. Then place a dining plate on the sand bed. To fill water to the aquarium, pour water right onto the dining plate in order to avoid agitating the sand bed.  
Directions to Use
Before placing the sand in aquarium, gently rinse it with clean water a few pounds at a time until water turns from murky to clear. Then place sand in aquarium.

Tropic Eden Premium Grade Aragonite Reef Substrates are TRUE marine originated aragonite. Unlike calcium carbonate oolite which forms at the interface of cool and warm oceanic currents, Tropic Eden's aragonite reef substrates consist of REAL calcareous algae, juvenile seashells, foraminifera shells, coral fragments, and other marine calcareous organisms. Because these materials are the remains of marine organisms, they contain all of the essential elements necessary for the growth of marine organisms.
A sand bed using Tropic Eden's aragonite reef substrates greatly helps achieve a natural biological balance in aquariums because the substrate materials, in a self-regulated manner, continuously deliver a complete array of trace elements and buffers in a naturally correct proportion, replenishing any loss over time as well as diminishing any pH fluctuation which is highly unfavorable to fishes, corals, and all other aquarium inhabitants.

Tropic Eden Premium Grade Aragonite Reef Substrates also provide a natural habitat in the sand bed which largely enhances nitrification and denitrification facilitated by benthic bacteria and other sand bed microbes.
Natural coral reefs are profoundly important to the earth. They have been existing in the ocean for thousands of years. In comparison, they are the tropical rainforest in the ocean because they are the home and the major food factory for countless number of marine organisms, including mammals, fishes, invertebrates, crustaceans, corals, free-swimming planktons, and many filter feeders.

In a coral reef ecosystem, an important foundation is a very thick layer of substrates composed of various calcareous materials, possibly a few hundreds meters in depth, which underline all rocks structures and anything living above. The super thick sand bed, in fact, may be divided into distinctive layers distinguished by sand grains of different forms, shapes, sizes and composition. The separation of shoals of unique sand forms are the result of the natural forces like currents, winds, and the characteristics of the organisms that predominate in the area.


At Tropic Eden, we only select the highest quality of reef sand that exactly matches the requirement we need. We pay great attention to selecting the specific forms of the reef sand we collect. Hence, we have the sugar sized reef sand DeepSea AragaSnow, Tonga Pink Sand, Tonga Mesoflakes, Tonga MiniFlakes, Tonga Reeflakes which look very much like oatmeal flakes, and the original Tropic Eden C.R.Media for use in calcium reactor as a great source of a complete spectrum of minerals and trace elements so critical for the growth of stony corals and all other calcareous organisms. These four are part of Tropic Eden's high quality natural aquarium products.

Very importantly, of course, we make sure that every load of our reef sand contains at least 95% of MARINE ARAGONITE, the material that is most suited for use as substrate in reef, marine, or cichlid aquariums. Tropic Eden Premium Grade Aragonite Reef Substrates are TRUE Marine-Originated Aragonite, naturally formed by calcareous marine organisms, in the process of skeletal growth or the building of calcareous body structure.

Aragonite is the material of choice for use as buffer in marine or cichlid aquariums, which counteracts any pH fluctuation that causes deviation from 8.2, the prime pH value of marine water in the natural coral reefs. Thus, aquariums with sand bed layer composed of Tropic Eden 's marine aragonite significant differ from aquariums that use relatively inert calcium carbonate materials or the calcite form of coral skeleton that usually stabilize at an exceedingly low pH value of 7.5 - 7.8, a highly unfavorable pH value to marine fishes, and all coral reef organisms.

So...late one night I was shopping online for a new seahorse tank. I ended up on the Two Tides website & in the bottom corner it said to click for a live chat. Since it was after midnight & they’re in the same time zone, I thought no way. But I clicked anyway & sure enough I was chatting with a live person! We chatted for over an hour until he asked for my email address telling me I’d be contacted the next day. That’s when I met Tyler. He helped me with my purchase. He went above & beyond to get me the tank I wanted, even spending a day on a video chat with Pro Clear Aquatics as they searched their warehouse looking for the aquarium I wanted with a blue back. They stopped making these a while back but they found one for me! I absolutely love this aquarium & I can honestly say that Tyler provided THE best customer service I have ever experienced from an online vendor. He told me from the start that he would stay with me from start to finish & he did. He was always there to promptly answer any questions or concerns I had. I can’t say enough about how happy I am with my purchase!

Piece of Art

I was looking for rimless peninsula aquarium to upgrade my 80 Gallon and my 70 Gallon mixed coral reef this year, but had a really hard time finding it because of the coronavirus. So I purchased a ProStar 230 Peninsula from Two Tides and I’m glad I made the right choice. The 3/4” low Iron glass display tank and large glass sump and light weight white stand is just beautiful as a piece of art. Tyler is extremely helpful and responsive and made the process easy and stress free. Everything arrived very well packaged. When we were setting up the tank, we couldn’t believe how easy the setup was with no issues what so ever. If you are looking for a high quality aquarium I highly recommend this company.

Absolutely beautiful fish tank and customer services

I am very happy with my order. The tank is very beautiful of out the box and it was well packaging with feel very safe from shipping damage.

Custom services from Two Tides Aquarium Supply was excellent. I have communicated with Tyler who had assisted me throughout the process from ordering the tank through shipping process, and what to expect on delivery day.

I am highly recommend anyone who want to get a new aquarium, to purchase from Two Tides Aquarium. Best to look for Tyler, he is a very helpful and pleasing person to contact if you have any question. I am glad that I have met him and definitely I would buy again in the future from Two Tides Aquarium supply when I need another fish tank and any other aquarium supply that I may need.

Thank you very much for a beautiful tank.

Regards,
James

Great Customer Service

I am very pleased with not only the product I received but the service that came with it. Tyler was in constant contact with me throughout each stage of the process. He answered all questions I had and was even able to provide me with links to plumbing parts I needed for the build. We had a small hiccup with shipping (carrier's fault not Two Tides) but Tyler was able to update me throughout the day. Tyler genuinely cares about his customers and I would recommend the company to anyone looking for their next show room tank!

Great unit

Makes water quickly. Very happy with the unit so far. Pump is quiet, runs great. Finally decided to get a good rodi system. This one has exceeded my expectations way better then any other unit that I've had before. TwoTides Aquarium supply shipped it fast and couldn't be happier with this unit.
