I've been trying to find some in North-Central Florida. Anyone find any here? I've been calling all the HD locations around here. I've called HD HQ and they can't (or won't) tell me what stores have it. I've tried to contact YardRight to find retailer locations but no answer yet.

I bet they really hate having to put up with us fish geeks every summer.

It's also getting rather late in the season. I would imagine it will keep getting tougher and tougher to find until next spring.

I called these guys and the man said "you aren't using this for a saltwater aquarium are you???" really condecending sounding So of course I said "ummm uhhh errr no sir". The problem is that I'm in florida and none of my stores will transfer it down here so I'm waiting on the guy to call me back and tell me how much it'll be to ship 200lbs Should be real fun. If it's too much, I'm strapping on the scuba gear and doing an undercover reconnaissance mission off coast a ways Can anybody tell me how deep I should be getting the sand from... or how far out? I know not to use beach sand or close in sand because of pollution, but how far out is good enough?

If your really worried about pollution do heavy metal tests and rinse it well.
