Orlando area people question about where to find sand

Does anybody know where to find the tropical sand I can use in my tank in the area.

Sea in the City

They are located off of Lake Underhill. They are really small, but they've got good things there. I think their sand is from Key West and it's like 2 bucks a pound.

I bought my sand, about 150 pounds, from Home Depot. That was about a year ago. I don't remember the name. Sorry.

thor32766: I don't know if the sand is there or not

robertfah: No, this is not live sand. Live sand is a waste of money. The dead sand with the live rock will be live sand in a couple of weeks.
