Looks like a nice deal at 40 bucks! :)

Is the shipping, listed as $78, correct?
Howdy,
Next day flat rate via UPS in an XL dimension box is $78. I wish it were cheaper.
If you live in Florida, we can ship UPS ground for $25. Adding this option to website.

I’ll have to come visit you when I come back to St Pete! Where are you located?
We are located on W. Hillsborough Ave, however the warehouse is not open to the public.

Okay! I’m glad you’ll be adding ground shipping to Florida residents since I reside in Jacksonville. I frequent St. Pete a lot since that’s where I grew up and a lot of my favorite aquarium stores are there including aquarium depot. I will definitely be placing an order for some rubble for a refugium soon!

Could I use this to *seed* a new aquarium? I want the fine white sand on top, so could I do 50/50.. I plan on using gulf live rock as well.

Ocean live sand is excellent for adding biodiversity.

The sugar sand will event sift through the very coarse sand, which can clog up its capabilities to a degree. I personally wouldn’t mix sugar fine with coarse.

If you have a sump/fuge put coarse sand there, or purchase Rubble rock.

I had not thought about using the sand in the fuge. That is a good idea, Thanks!

Happy Reefing Saturday!
If your sand bed is looking dull, consider a refresh with TBS Gulf of Mexico sand collected at our live rock farm!
Hand harvested ocean live sand is so full of life that is ships same day air cargo OR next day UPS.

Full of biodiversity for a healthy reef tank!
This sand is hand harvested next to live rock in the close company of wrasses, flounders and shrimp.

Hi @LiverockRocks! I’m looking at the Jar Package to boost biome diversity in my 225 gallon system. Two questions:

1) Any issue putting the sand and base rock in my sump?

2) In a system this large, would a package this small really require daily water changes?

Hiya,

1. No problem.
2. In an established/mature tank, no additional water changes required.

For your large system the jar package is a bit small. In the Treasure Chest category, you might consider the 8lb Rubble Box, the Sand and Rox Box or the 8lb Box of Rox. These items are better proportioned for what you are trying to accomplish.

You won't find more ALIVE live sand then from us.
Hand harvested by Jocelyn within view of the million pounds, the grain size is coarse, and it is full of everything from coral skeletons, rock bits, sand bits, coralline bits, sponge bits broken shells and micro creatures.

Can you get the finer sand that doesn’t have all the course pieces in it?
Hiya, just spoke to Jocelyn and she says YES.
When placing an order for sand, in the notes/comments section at checkout, ask for finer grade sand.
 

Do you reef in a perfectly square box?
