I found sand at my Walmart called "white beach sand". It sure looks real, (full of little discolored particals.) Its by a company named Gulf Coast, or something like that. I dont know. Ill have to check when I get home. Anyone familiar with this type?

Its amazing when you think about it, I spent 6 dollars for 100 lbs. If I bought the same amount at my local fish store it would have cost me 125 dollars! thats a savings of 119 dollars!

I have more in common with druggies than I ever thought:

We both go crazy for that white powder!

I called a bunch of Home Depots in Maryland and pennsylvania yesterday and finally tracked some down near Harrisburg. Drove up there last evening and picked some up. I tried to get the Home Depot near me to get it shipped to them but they wouldn't even consider it. But when I talked to the guys at the Harrisburg store they acted kind of mad that my local store wouldn't order it in. They took my name and number and said they would contact my Home Depot and see what they could do. We'll see...

This is the store that I got it from. They had a full pallet as of last night.

That's sicila sand. I almost bought some of that also. My local lowes claimed to have "tropical" play sand and when I got there it was that.
