Rocket River Sand from the WIOdecor-Sands series by the manufacturer WIO is a decorative shady sand with a mixture of light and dark grey grains like a real natural biotope riverbed. The substrate has a slightly variable grain size between 0,1 - 5 mm. Due to its natural dark colour, this sand is ideal for biotope aquariums that recreate a lake, river, pond or stream environment of the Amazon, West Africa or the tropics of Asia.

Sand is usually a passive substrate that does not provide nutrients for the aquarium plants. Therefore, when setting up with sand as the sole substrate, the use of substrate fertiliser can be necessary. Fertiliser balls or tablets can be used to enrich specific parts of the aquarium with nutrients, so that especially plants with strong roots, such as cryptocorynes, can benefit from this.

All WIOdecor sand types are pre-washed. Nevertheless, the manufacturer recommends briefly rinsing the sand with cold water before use to wash off any abrasion caused by transport. This also helps to prevent grains of sand from floating up when filling the aquarium.
