Ok, so as many of us in the midwest have probably found out that they have discontinued the sale of tropical play sand in the area, which is very tragic! Ok, so here is my solution. I have a sellers permit, which means I can buy wholesale if I plan on re-selling the play sand. I have contacted the company that sells the sand with interest in buying a bunch of it. But heres the thing, I am sure there is a minimum quantity of how much I can buy, and I doubt its less than 1000 lbs of the stuff... yikes... I mean DSBs are good.. but 1000 lbs of sand would make like a 30 inch sandbed in my 18" tall aquarium. I think thats a bit too deep
So if I were to make a purchase who would be interesting in purchasing the sand? I would be able to sell it at cost, but I would also have to include taxes. Which is 5.6%
If anyone is interested please PM me. I would be willing to ship it, but I would still charge tax to make stuff easier on my end, and of course buyer would pay for shipping. But I know that I can probably send about 20-30 lbs of sand for 7.70 (good ol' USPS flat rate boxes).
Well please let me know, I plan on getting a lot sometime soon. If I dont sell it all thats fine, I plan on making some live rock with some of it. Please inquire about any quantities! Also please include your email address and I'll just send a mass email out to anyone who has inquired about it once I get further along in this process.
