We are redoing our cichlid tank and use blasting sand the first time around and this time wen I went to get some the package says " product must stay dry" I picked it up anyway as its only 7$ but thinking I'm goin to have to get play sand. Also with my first bag it said pre washed this one don't (assuming BC it says product must stay dry) has any one else seen this change? I really want black tho.

I would think it says "keep dry" for the purpose of sandblasting. I doubt it's any different than before.

That's what I was thinking but wasn't sure. Ilk see if its the same wen I wash it. The whole thing that really threw me off was one said washed and than the other doesn't. Also does it matter the size of the sand(grain size)

I would think that's just personal preference.

I used it the time I set up the tank but the bottom of the tank cracked so I wanted get new sand for the new tank but wen it said product must stay dry i got a lil nervous cause the first bag didn't say it. But all went well washed the sand for wat seemed like forever in tank fill tank there was a lil cloud that cleared up with in a half hr. Water temp matched after about an he than did accumulation and they were good. Outta buckets and back in tank happy.
