if you need some, there are some bags at the home depot in Carol Stream, IL. I was just there on friday, and they had 14 bags left. Im thinking of picking up some more just to have.

FYI, to all Mass. AA members,

Just visted Home Depot in Reading, MA - was told there are no bags in any of the eastern MA stores, but that all MA stores should be receiving their seasonal shipment of Southdown Tropical Play Sand within 2 weeks.

I'm in New Orleans and I've searched the HD's and Lowes stores here and have had no luck. I broke down and bought some quickrete silica playsand because I don't have the money for Caribsea and needed to get my new cichlid tank up and running. I'd love to know if I could get Southdown shipped here or find out if it's available anywhere from here to Houston.

Hey poppab02 - if you find any, I am about 45 minutes from Nola and would be willing to drive.... I am just wondering if our Baton Rouge/New Orleans area will ever get it (as everyone else does during "seasonal" times).

For anybody in (Eastern) Iowa I just picked some up at the Dubuque Menards. I asked someone in "building supply" and also confirmed it by mixing some with vinegar. It's their play sand by "CW & T" in Storm Lake, IA.

If you live more than 100 miles from Florida, you probably will not see this sand in your local market.

According to an article on Marcona Ocean Industries:
"The maximum transport distance for [aragonite sand] to be competitive with traditional onshore sources [silica sand] is about 150 km. Silica sand and carbonate aggregates have a higher unit value and can be transported farther distances."

Obviously Home Depot has shipping methods that extend this distance somewhat, but simple economics limits how far the sand can travel from Florida.
