What type of sand ?

Im getting ready to tackle the project of pulling out my CC and putting a DSB in. Ive looked everywhere for playsand but just cant seem to find it in my area. I still need to try walmart then i give up.

Anyone have an experience with the Caribsea Seaflor sand ? or is anyone that is in a state that can get the playsand willing to ship it to me? i will gladly paypal the funds

I bought a pallet 3200lbs of the good stuff. White playsand by durascape. When I added vinegar it foamed so much it came over top of the container. I never had any luck with the walmart sand. To ship it would cost more than you could buy it for at the lfs.

He private messaged me.
$85 100 lbs
$117 150 lbs
Good luck. If I did ship it the way UPS handles packages you would probably get a empty bag.
