Okay so I ran to my local home depot here in the Bay Area and of course no "Southdown". I did however pick up two 50 pound bags of Basalite brand Play Sand. The consistency is what I would expect fine grain size silica looking and clean. Would this stuff suffice for my DSB
? If not would anyone in my area know of where to get the proper sand without spending ridiculous prices?
My second question in setting up my first SW
tank is for the initial water that I mix. I do not have a RO
unit and would not use my tap water. Any opinions on using water from the local water store where I go to get our drinking water. Im sure they use a RO
filtration on their water.
