Found some tropical play sand...

The Home Depot in Reading, PA sells Old Castle silica free tropical play sand. 50lbs - 4.99.

At least that's what the guy on the phone said. I'll be going there tomorrow to get some.

I haven't verified this but I have been told that amateur astronomers often use Greyhound to ship large telescopes because it costs considerably less. Of course you couldn't ship live rock or fish this way (and expect them to survive) but it might be a cheap way to ship sand.

I hope you received the correct sand. i have given UPC and sku # for Home depot
SKU # 488-8887 Yardright Tropical Playsand
UPC 0-9060420101-9

Two friends (not SWA people) have purchased this sand at Home depot. I now have 8 bags of the wrong sand. What a bunch of morons at HD!!
