Arag-Alve line of live sands achieves rapid cycling by first preparing, and then seeding the aragonite grain surfaces with spored marine bacteria for maximum longevity and thermal resistance. These bacteria strains are specifically engineered for maximum waste reduction. Some types of bacteria reduce nitrogenous waste by metabolic oxidation while others incorporate nitrogen into bacterial biomass during the rapid growth phase. Bacteria are maintained in a spored state before introduction into an aquarium by restricting access to certain limiting factors required for active metabolism. When Arag-Alive is introduced into a new aquarium, the bacteria are activated, compressing or eliminating the ammonia cycle.
While some fishes that live over sand flats and slopes near coral reefs construct a burrow to live in, others seek shelter in and may actually swim under the substrate. Many wrasse species will dive under a fine substrate surface when they feel they are in danger. In these species, a fine substrate with a small, relatively homogenous grain size can ensure that they will not damage themselves when engaging in sand diving behavior.
