Okay, the sand is Global Stone Corporation Sanatized White Play Sand. It actually does NOT say "Tropical Sand" on the bag it only says it on the display (which is actually for southdown). Anyway, I'm getting a new 110 gallon on Thursday so I grabbed 4 40lb bags for $16. It's really nice looking white sand, but the back does say "Sand contains small amounts of silica which can cause cancer if enhaled" so there's my answer.
I know this subject has been BEATEN to death, but silica is okay except for sharp edges that may harm sand sifting animals, correct? And no PH
buffer, but I"m assuming salt will take care of ph
for the most part, no? I'm probably abandoning my southdown search at this point.
