Hi everyone

A friend of a friend runs a pet shop and we got talking the other nite telling him I just need to get coral substrate and I'm ready to set my tank up so I said yeah no problem get me 2 15 kg bags(had a few pints and thought no more of it).

So today I got a phone call I have that substrate there for you it is the bigger grain then I wanted but the pet shop doesn't stock fish so he went out of his way to get it for me

So I kinda had to take it.

I haven't heard of the make before its Hugo kamishi coral sand it doesn't say if it's a ph buffering substrate ect

So has anyone got any experience with this stuff

Regards Craig

I have heard of that brand i think before (not 100% though) but i cant associate it with coral sand that's for sure...........If it's 'actual' coral sand then it will defo alter your PH and act as a buffer.

Sorry i could not be more help dude.

Thanks ger there isn't much online about it if it is actually crushed coral it does look like it tho

It's for an African tank so I really hope it does buff the ph I have 2 15kg bags of it so suppose I have to use it now :crazy:

Put a small amount into a container

And test ph periodically for a few days

I got crushed coral sand with tank I bought, but I don't like the look of it. Very day after cleaning it looks messy again! :(
I decided to go for black gravel which also buffers ph, no more visible sh*t :laugh:

I still have plenty of left if someone is interested.
