I answered this on your other thread I believe. I have had zero issues with gobies and sifters and pool filter sand.

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

Just for the record I wish I'd used the pfs I had. I like the color better.

I like calcium based sand for it's reflectivity and buffering capability, but As far as silicates, what about the tank glass? Why doesn't that "leach" anything. I'm not sure silicates and algae problems is a valid reason to use calcium based sand.

I have an Australian gold sand and honestly with the lighting for my reef the color looks white. Don't know about the pink but I'm guessing its pretty much the same. My 2 pennies worth.

I've always used calcium based sand because I like a white sand bed, and have only found yellowish sand around here.

Obviously pool filter sand has no shelf life. Is there a shelf life for the arag-alive sand?
