I used pool filter sand in my 125g. I got it at home depot for about $4 for 50lbs. pool supply stores also sell it for a few dollars more. You wouldnt even need the whole bag. hehe might be easier to just get regular aragonite sand. I would steer clear of the live sand unless it has a particular color or texture you like.

I bought a bag of the love sand only cause I wanted the fiji pink and it only came in LS.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

No specific color, I want a natural light colored sand, no pink or purple haha! Now another LFS which im losing faith in, an older lady that works in saltwater told me i have to change my sand-bed every year or so is this true?

Yea that pet store is going down the drain, they want 18 bucks for a bushynose pleco and 10 bucks for an odessa barb! I found a new LFS dedicated to Saltwater. All their tanks are rimless, they use LED's and install LED's on the nano cubes. RO water is 30 cents a gal, and I LOVE THIS, their live rock is 2.99-7.99 and all of it is lighted and all of it has coraline algae! This means you can choose the size and quality of your live rock!
