Yardright Tropical Play Sand

Does anybody know why the Yardright website (http://www.yardright.com/sand.htm) states that their tropical play sand is not suitable for aquariums?

Thanks.[/url]

They are obligated to say that for competitive reasons. It is suitable just not expensive enough in their opinion

Home Depot might still have it as "Southdown". Check in the garden section. My brother recently picked up a few bags to fill in his pavers.
