If you are looking for a brighter look than can be achieved with the traditional sandy colored aquarium sand, you could potentially achieve a brighter, whiter color with a crushed coral aquarium sand substrate. As mentioned in the section above, this sand substrate is made from the (bleached) crushed skeletons of dead corals (that sounds bleak, doesn’t it), but out of the bag it has an appealing white coloration. Be warned, however, the white color is most prominent on the dry substrate.

After some time, the white aquarium sand substrate will become covered in a biological film (ie. bacteria) and will also get clogged with dirt and detritus–so once your aquarium is up-and-running, your gravel won’t be such a pure white–but don’t worry, all that extra color (even though the color is mostly brown…) is actually doing good things for the health of your tank.

What makes Fiji White Sand different than other popular marine aquarium substrates is it is marketed as a calcium and magnesium substrate (99.6% pure) that is heavier than comparable aragonite sand (with the stated benefit of being less likely to be blown about by water flow compared to similarly sized aragonite sand). Fiji White Sand also appears to be more white and reflective than popular aragonite substrates.Crushed coral aquarium sand, by comparison, is a substrate with much larger particles…instead of fine grains of sand, a crushed coral substrate looks like tiny white stones (that are actually pieces of crushed up coral skeletons…which is where it gets it’s name.

So, of course, I wondered if the black and white aquarium sand would work for fusing. Because if it did, well how cool would that be? I’d have two additional to work with. I did some research and found that most of the colored aquarium sands are coated with acrylic, which is a no-no in the kiln. I made absolutely certain that the sand I bought wasn’t coated. The first thing to do is test that gorgeous stuff! Using one of my handy ceramic tile molds, I add several tablespoons of each color:
