TMC EcoSand - the sustainable alternative when it comes to substrate
TMC uses finely ground and sea-washed seashells for its EcoSand. They don’t take sand directly from natural reefs. By using this sustainable alternative you make an important contribution to the protection of our natural ecosystems.
Substrate in a reef aquarium - what do I need to consider?
For normal substrate coverage, a sand height of about 2 cm in the aquarium is completely sufficient. You will need about 20-25 kg of substrate for a 1 x 1 m area. Be sure to rinse the sand well before use! Note that the reef construction should stand directly on the bottom plate and not on sandy areas, as otherwise there is a risk of collapse later on.
