@sfin52 okay, okay...been busy receiving a container of WS rocks. C70C06BD-A5D2-489F-AEE4-034528F078BB.jpeg . Honeycomb, slabs, caves, arches and huge Tonga shapes. 357D8A75-229B-46C7-B1D4-C15F3B559E9E.jpeg
Meanwhile the WS planted late summer has cooked up nicely. 46E5AB35-047D-48B8-A04E-D8D299F9D9A8.jpeg

Don’t worry folks, we are mostly harvesting vintage TBS, rock that’s been soaking 15, 20 + years. 556C419F-0C11-4E50-A42E-128F87BDC01B.jpeg 8FA76890-ECDA-477B-9F8D-D7D4919EA3E9.jpeg 6BBA0583-7834-4B4F-90B4-DD7DAD459C37.jpeg

Last week Richard dropped by to check out the WS and most recent harvest.
Pretty exciting cause the new Tampa Bay Saltwater hasn’t even reached the 1 yr anniversary.

And then we come to the website. Hired someone from the reefing hobby universe to create an awesome site. It’s in the final phases now.

Thanks to all our awesome customers thus far. You guys Rock!

Well, I ordered 20/20 LR/LS, due to ship the 29th for my 20 Gallon JBJ. I'm going to wet test it, and get everything all lined up and ready. I'm looking forward to this, it's my 1st attempt at salt water. Thanks TBS.

Hiya Folks, let's talk Real Live Sand from the Tampa Bay Saltwater lease site.

Benefits- naturally improve aquarium health by diversifying the microorganisms within your system with fresh Gulf of Mexico sand.
  • excellent for new tank cycling
  • excellent for established tank seeding
  • create a natural environment which decreases stress for your reef inhabitants: jawfish burrows, sleeping wrasses, scuttling crabs and grazing tangs
Alive- can't get more live Live Sand that ours.
  • micro critters from stars to snails to worms
  • beneficial bacteria
  • will not live in a bag on a store shelf
  • requires life support provided by a functioning aquarium upon arrival
Appearance- imagine walking the beaches on the west coast of Florida.
  • an array of colorful tiny broken shells and coral fragments
  • will not blow around with heavy flow
  • coarse sand with random pieces of shell or coral skeletons
Harvesting- we are picky, picky, picky about sand quality.
  • from the 30-year-old Tampa Bay Saltwater lease site in the Gulf of Mexico
  • high currents and tides keep churning out this fresh and clean natural product
  • hand harvested literally amongst the flounders
  • harvesting sand under the sea is no fun, but the benefits live sand provides hobbyists are unmatched
Shipping- kept submerged from the ocean floor to your door.
  • UPS next day for 30lbs and under
  • Air Cargo for 20lbs and up
  • its fast and fresh from Florida
Care- it's alive, keep it that way!
  • provide all the aspects needed to maintain good water quality
  • clean-up crews sifting, scuttling, burrowing and picking are a win
  • provide flow because it originates from a high flow area
  • wise aquascape concepts like island building and openings through the bottom of your scape for water flow
  • vacuum small sections as needed according to your system's debris pattern

I think something is wrong. I entered 400G as my tank size and it quoted me a package that cost $6692.00
Howdy @kenchilada,

Thanks for reaching out. As you know, the Package is a combination of hand harvested live sand, base rock, premium rock and critters. It is a ratio that TBS has used for 30 years; 2lbs rock and 1lb sand per gallon.

A 400 Gallon Package contains
  • 400lbs of base rock
  • 400lbs of premium rock
  • 400lbs of sand
  • 200 Astreas
  • 200 Blue Hermits
  • 8 Starfish
  • 8 Cucumbers
  • 8 Peppermints
We also sell sand and rock by the pound.
