Found some, 5bucks a bag. There were 6 skids of it, so if anyone needs/wants it lemme know. Is this stuff safe for a freshwater tank? Also should the sand be rinsed? It was sitting outside in the lawn and garden department and its damp from the rain, i'll probably give it a good rinse just too make sure.

Some rinse, and some do not. I believe it is just what you prefer.

Rinsing may remove some of the more fine sand particles, but it will also keep the cloudiness down. HTH!

hmm It might be getting alittle late in the season, lots of stores are probably starting to run dry. Keep looking, you never know, and try asking the folks at your HD/lowes, they may be willing to ship it from another location to your store.

Would beach sand be acceptable as a base? I live right by the shore in Jersey...

If it is legal, you need to go as far out as you can, and then it will be ok. From what I have heard.

I am sorry, could you clarify...? OK from a legal sense or OK from a suitable sand sense...?

I believe that the Rev was saying that if it is legal to collect the sand, then you should collect it form as far out from the shoreline as is feasible. The purpose is to collect clean sand that hasn't been exposed to pollutants. The waves act as a giant protein skimmer and all the gunk gets deposited on the beach. Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong!
