play sand blues

ive had some bad run ins with play sand. along time ago i went to home depot to get some of the nice white tropical play sand. they didn't have exactly what i was looking for but they had something like it so i decided to get it(its 3 bucks for 50lbs. whats the worst that could happen) so when i get home and open the bag up its this dark brown sand that wasn't at all what i was thinking of. i decided to put it in the tank anyways and see how it looked and it was fine for a wile, but its just not what i wanted. so i go back to see what else home depot had, and i found some sand that had just been restocked that i had missed befor. the guy said it was white so i decided to go for it. i get home and its the exact same sand just with a difrent lable. i was so mad. so i just cant seem to find that magical white sand.
sory about the long post. just needed to vent. im very angry

Check out the thread below... page 17...RLG2182's post (near the bottom) If you can contact Rob, see if he has had any luck. It's the closest thing that I have heard to you. Hope this helps.
