Product Information




Ocean Direct Oolite Live Sand 40 lb. Bag, Caribsea.

Ocean Direct is different than all other live sand products on the market. This live sand utilizes patent pending Sea Breathe laser technology which preserves real live sand with its own original bacteria.

Every bag of Ocean Direct is alive and breathing with up to 1000 times more beneficial bacteria than other preservation methods. Every grain of Ocean Direct is coated with bacteria and encapsulated by capillary action in a thin film of real ocean water. The thin file is open to the atmosphere for unparalleled gas exchange. This results in high counts of natural and beneficial bacteria with no noxious buildup of metabolic by-products.

Each bag includes a packet of Bio-Magnet clarifier to reposition the free floating bacteria to where they are most active; sand beds, surfaces of live rocks, and to biological filtration media. Ocean Direct provides you with a thriving, natural aquarium in minutes!

Ocean Direct Oolite is know for its uniquely spherical, uniform gradation. This ultra fine, creamy white substrate is a favorite of the cutting edge reef keeper, and popular for shallow and deep sand beds alike. Burrowing inverts, gill sifting fish, and soft-bellied rays and sharks will especially appreciate the smooth, rounded grains. Deep oolitic beds are renowned for their propensity to create a truly ?living? sand bed by creating a haven for worms and other benthic invertebrates. This material is almost exclusively sub 1 mm oolite, most of this will be less than 0.60 mm is size.
