Every grain of Ocean Direct is coated with bacteria and encapsulated by capillary action in a thin film of real ocean water.
The thin film 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 y-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!
Simply Perfect-Ocean Direct supplies the perfect union of physics and biology!
Ocean Directs Original Grade is Caribbean live sand with its natural particle breakdown; an overall fine material with smooth oolitic grains on the low end of the spectrum. Increasing to small bits of real reef rubble on the height end. This grade rich in texture and soft color is perfect for most any marine aquaria, but especially suited for burrowing fish and invertebrates eager to use the larger bits for burrow construction. This natural rubble also recreates the natural habitat of decapods, copapods, sponges, and other natural reef foods. This is the product we use in our 120 gallon experimental reef tank and has performed flawlessly in a very high flow environment. This is material often has reef rubble in it, but about 77% of the material by weight is less than 1 mm in size (most of that being smaller than 0.60 mm!)
