It says on the bag "not recomended" because of a contractual non-compete agreement between the supplier of the sand and another aquarium products company. This play sand is the exact same sand that you see in the LFS
for $20 for a 25 pound bag
I went to my local Home Depot and brought some of the brand KolorScape Play Sand. It is a very Nice White/Grey color. Distributed by OldCastle Lawn & Garden.
I gave it the vinegar test and it failed miserably. It looked like I was holding a cup of alka-seltzer.
Oh well I guess that is why we test for ourselves...lol
