Hello everyone! I am starting up a salt water tank and have had trouble finding the right play sand. Based on what I've read in the previous play sand posts, the "best" brands to get are Southdown or Old Castle. Unfortunately, I've called about a dozen places in the area (several Home Depots, Lowes, Meijers, plus some local gravel/landscaping places) and no luck! I've only found Durascape's "Leisure Lanscapes," but I tried the vinegar test and nothing happened. A HD
about an hour away says they have Dixie Sand. Anyone try this stuff?
I'd love to hear from anyone out there living in Michigan. I'm currently in the mid-Michigan area (Lansing) but would be willing to make a trip a little out of the way.
I know the silicate sands are OK to use, but I'm patient and would rather do this right and will wait until I exhaust all my opportunities to get the best sand possible.
, great website! I find myself surfing the various forum topics for hours at night. I've learned a ton!
