did that guy even read the post? lol

Ya scuba when I was taking back my sand to hte hardwarestore I asked the manager to see if he could get me a skid of what I needed since they all ready deal with oldcastle he said he'd look into it.I assured him I would take the whole skid if need be and would be calling back tommorrow If he can;t I am gonna try to get the hd to order one for me.

He said 60 bags to a skid and considering it is $20 for 50lbs this sounds like a deal if I can move the rest of it which I would assume I would have no issue doing

No the stuff that is $20 a 50lb bucket is from the fish store. That is why everyone loves oldcastle instead of spending $120-150 on sand I can get the fish I want this yearwell see I am on the hunt that is for sure
