Live sand when you open it still has a bit of water and the sand is mois to keep the bacteria alivet..... While the dry sand is just that dry....
Aragonite is just a type of sand.....

If youre starting with dry sand ypu should rinse it before using it. IF it says LIVE SAND on the bag then don't rinse. Do you have a picture of the bagged sand? That would help for sure

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

No sixlines don't sleep in the sand. They make a web-like cocoon around themselves and sleep in your LR.

CaribSea® Aragamax Select Aragonite - Gravel & Sand - Fish - PetSmart

CaribSea® Aragonite Aragamax Oolite - Gravel & Sand - Fish - PetSmart

I am positive! that it was one of these two but not sure which one. I mean I dont think there is a difference either. cause I did pay $20 per bag. But yeah would you rinse these?
