Inferno Sand By WIO
Inferno sand is dark-colored sand that looks very natural and very similar to the kinds of silt and mud substrates that we encounter in aquatic habitats.
This sand would be ideal for a biotope aquarium representing lakes, rivers, pools, and streams from the Amazon, West Africa, or tropical Asia.
Its slightly reddish tint will bring warmth and depth to the display while the mix of grain sizes not only makes it look natural but allows for easy planting and lets fish such as cichlids and catfish dig or sift through it. It could also be used to great effect in an aquascape, especially when combined with bright green plants.
* Natural sand
* Size mix from 0,1mm to 2mm
* Does not affect water hardness
Available in 2kg & 5kg bags
Please, follow our recommendations to enjoy our sands:
All our sands are pre-washed though we recommend rinsing sands with water before use to remove remaining dust and particles to avoid buoyancy of particles on the water fill up.
You can easily test if any sand is inert or if it will change slightly the pH and hardness. Simply place a few drops of vinegar on the sand. If the vinegar (a base substance) fizzes or foams, it indicates that the sand contains some calcium.
Sands that contain calcium may alter the pH and kH. This can be especially pronounced if you have acidic water or CO2 addition. You can easily control it by regular water changes with osmotic or soft water. You can also use a water softener.
Note: All hardscape materials are final sale.
