Best place to get sand?

I need to get sand for my 75g. What are the best places to buy sand? I need a nice soft sand so that its doesn't hurt the belly of my baby cat shark.

CaribSea sugar sized sand or the next size up is still pretty small. The sugar fine sand is very soft, but it blows around tremendously so that might be a problem. Marinedepot, LFS, really anywhere or any brand works. Congrats on the shark if you have it or are getting it. Would love to see a pic!

How exciting. Would be cool to take a pic every day then speed it up so to see the progress. How long does the egg take to hatch? I obviously don't know anything about sharks haha.

Depends on how far along the egg is. Normally 3-6 weeks. They hatch around 6-7" and grow a 8-12" a year.

A tank that will be 96x36x30 I'm going to keep him in a 75g and if my large build gets delayed ill upgrade the 75g to a 125 for him.
