Thanks

I actually broke down and bought the sand from LFS. I was looking today and THINK there is some at the Home Depot in Ashburn, Va...Next to Dullas airport. I did not have any vinegar with me, so I couldn't make completely sure. It was pure white desert sand. When I go back to work on Monday, I'll doublecheck. You want me to pick yuo up some if it is good?

No, but thanks for the offer. I was just wanting you to post it for anyone else who may be looking.

Well, I took off this past Friday, in search of aragonite playsand. I went to Wal-Mart, 84 Lumber, Home Depot, some Rock and Tile place and did not find any playsand in the Charles Town area. I did find 5LBs at Gowers Feed, in C-Town, it is colored and a little over $3/5Lbs bag. I asked if they had other colors. They only had black but could get blue/white/red(I think). I got them to order me 25LBs of bluse and they offered me a 10% discount, so I took it.

On a side note, they have tropical fish, no SW. But had a good bit of stuff, even for cats/dogs horses and livestock.
On another side note, they were VERY helpful and VERY friendly!
