Sand prep question


New member
I got 20# of reef flake from another reefer. The sand was left outside in a 5g bucket. Had alot of pine needles in it. Have washed it out many times. No visible needles left. 90% sure its clean.

What else do i need to do? Dry it and hand sift it?

Bake it outside on the grill?

Any advice welcome

You're good. Put it in and start you cycle if a new system. If it's a mature system, I would probably add some nitrifying bacteria like Dr Tims per instruction. You could also start your cycle with this product.
