Sand and Gravel
Gray Coast™ Calcite is an all natural calcite substrate for all types of marine, reef and tropical aquaria. Its chemical composition will assist in stabilizing calcium and alkalinity while preventing large pH declines. Simply rinse before use to remove any residual dust. Unlike competing “wet” gravels, Gray Coast™ is sold dry: this bag contains 35% more gravel than a bag of wet gravel of equal weight. These “wet” gravels are marketed to give one the impression that they contain living, microscopic animals when in fact they only contain common bacteria. Dry or wet, there are bacteria on every substrate. If one is concerned with shortening the aquarium cycle time for a new system, then the use of a product designed for that particular purpose would be more appropriate (such as Seachem’s Stability®).

Simply rinse before use to remove any residual dust. To determine the number of bags required for your aquarium, please note that each bag (10 kg, 22 lbs) occupies a volume of 6,000 cm3 (366 cu. in.). To determine your desired volume multiply tank width by length by desired depth.
3.5 kg, 10 kg
Wondering how many bags you will need for your project? It's easy to figure out with this gravel calculator. Just enter the length and width of your aquarium along with the desired depth of the substrate and click calculate. Note: The calculator will always round up. For example, you can't purchase 1.3 bags, so it will return 2 bags.
If you plan on varying the depth of your substrate, use an average depth as your desired substrate depth.
