It will become live regardless. If it is not aragonite you need you be selective in fish purchases. No sand sifters or fish that stay on the bottom. It will scratch up their bellies. Take a little bit out and let it dry. put some vinegar on it to see if it fizzes so you will know if it is aragonite. Regular sand also does not offer any buffering capacity.
