Simply Natural - Enjoy this real Caribbean live sand in a breathable bag with no added chemicals or special processing.
Simple Effective - Ocean Direct is different than all other live sand products on the market. This live sand utilizes patent pending Sea Breathe laser technology which preserves real live sand with its own original bacteria.
Every bag of Ocean Direct is alive and breathing with up to 1000 times more beneficial bacteria than other preservation methods. Every grain of Ocean Direct is coated with bacteria and encapsulated by capillary action in a thin film of real ocean water. The thin film is open to the atmosphere for unparrelleled gas exchange. This results in high counts of natural and beneficial bacteria with no noxious buildup of metabolic by-products.
Each bag includes a packet of Bio-Magnet clarifier to reposition the free floating bacteria to where they are most active; sand beds, surfaces of live rocks, and to biological filtration media. Ocean Direct provides you with a thriving, natural aquarium in minutes!

Our pre-washed Super Naturals are designed with your success and ease of use in mind. Packaged in sizes that make sense, most types are available in 20 pound bags. We have carefully selected different sizes and colours to help you create a natural underwater environment. Except for Ramblin Rose, most of these inert products will not affect your pH or alkalinity, allowing you to adjust both of these important water quality parameters any way you wish. While these can be used for marine aquariums, keep in mind you will have to use our aragaMilk or aragaMight to keep your alkalinity and pH up where they need to be.
