My sand arrived the other day and I was surprised at the quick shipping time! I ordered the course sand because sugar sand just blows around too much for my liking, and it is the perfect texture! I only have 2 small complaints (thus the 4 out of 5). Sand arrives in a trash bag, inside of a box. Aside from ascetics the only real problem this creates comes from the handling of the sand when trying to portion and rinse. Each box is 40 lbs, and Ideally I would rinse 20 lbs at a time, which can be tricky when the bag rips as you are trying to dump sand from the box. This is not a big deal, and you will get the hang of it. The other thing you should know is you are going to do A LOT of rinsing, but this is just the nature of the beast really. Overall this product absolutely SHINES at this price point and I'm incredibly happy with my purchase, Marco has won another customer!!

I bought the 160 pound bag of sand. I received it today, right on schedule. I was surprised at how it was packaged, but all of it was there. I love the fine texture, it will look great with water and lights.
However, do rinse very very well.
Also, if you have never used sand before, maybe ask a professional how much you will need. I ordered WAAAAY too much sand. I have around 1.5" (average) of sand in my aquarium, and at the end I was left with 2 five gallon buckets left of the sand.
Overall I am pleased with the color, the texture, and the service. If you want natural looking sand, with a finer texture than play sand-this is it!

Got my two orders of 160 lbs Aragonite sand. Love the white and fine texture of the sand. But be prepare to get your hand dirty. This sand needs to be wash very well before placing it into your tank. I am very pleasure with my purchase and can't wait to get my reef tank set up.

I get almost all my aquarium stuff online and so it was nice to find aquarium supply at Marco Rocks. Great selection of live and dry rock, and their sand is the best I've bought in a long time. I will definitely be ordering more in the future.

There are lots of places to order aquarium rocks online, but I keep coming back to Marco Rocks. They have a decent selection of live and dry rocks and of other supplies you need to keep your aquarium looking great and in good shape. I especially like their argonite sand. It's very high quality. Looks like I will continue to be a return customer here!
