    I have 40lbs of Caribsea Hawaiian Black sand in my new tank... I wanted to keep a few wrasses in there but I’m thinking the grain size may be too big for them to burrow in. Any thoughts or experiences?

    Not all wrasses burrow. It depends on the species of wrasse.

    Never used the Hawaiian black but the grain size is listed as .25 -3.5 mm. I have used reef flakes with a grain size of 3.0 mm and my wrasses never had issues burrowing in it.

    I have 2 diamond gobys that have no trouble with larger grains.
