Because you can cycle the tank much faster, so is the claim. It's a debated theory but the claim is that your ENTIRE sand bed is ready to go from day one. One of my LFS stands behind it enough that if you buy a tank, enough "live sand in a bag" and premixed water, they will send you home with fish on day one and guarantee they make it. I don't agree with it myself but it's their policy. What if you feel isolated as a hobbyist and don't feel like there are any tanks near you? What if you live in the country and MUST order everything to be shipped in? What if you are just getting into the hobby and don't realize that you could buy a pound of display sand (All of my LFS open bags of aragonite and keep them in 50g tanks seeded and ready to go. It costs $0.25 a lb more) and use that to slowly seed your tank? There are reasons why this is a decent product, there are just as many reasons not to buy it.
