Quite likely. Just like Nike sells hundreds of different kinds of shoes, some for running, some for walking some for super-uber-jumping in basketball etc. Very different shoes... but all "shoes". The same goes for Old Castle. They sell a number of different kinds of sand but the ONLY kind you want is their "Tropical Play Sand". Someone here just posted a pic of it,

Fishstix. I have exhausted all sources in So. California. HD says they cannot and will not distribute the "Old Castle tropical" to a California store. Won't even transfer. If you find some "Rebel" please let me know. Us fellow Californian Aquariasts are in desperate need. I need 150-200lbs if you find some.

I have exhausted every source up here in bakersfield.
Unfortunately, most of the people I have talked to dont have a clue as to what Im even talking about. Even when I call saltwater aquarium supply stores they have no clue. One place out in ridgecrest said they have pooka(sp?) and coral and thats it.

This is a website for ordering southdown playsand, but right now it isnt running right now for sale (it is seasonal). I had to snoop around the website to find a index page http://www.justphish.com/drygoods/ not sure if i am supposed to go there Price is a little more cuz of shipping, but overall it looks cheaper than most aquarium stores.

I don't know if this will help anyone but I found a palet full of the 50# southdown sand at a Home Depot at:
1580 W Lane Road
Machesney Park, IL 61115

It was only like $6 a bag and is the correct kind. This was about 2 weeks ago so sorry if they ran out but they had 50+ bags then.

Anyone know any places near York, PA 17402 that carry it. I was surprised that I couldn't find it since the company that makes it is located in PA. I have already checked HD, Lowe's and Walmart in the 17402 area.
