Interested in Aragonite?

I am looking at ordering a half-pallet of aragonite sand for a group of people. Is anyone interested in getting in on the order? I need people to speak for about 15 bags by 4-19-04 to do this.

Depending on the number of people, the total price including shipping should be $20/bag for aquarium grade aragonite. THIS IS NOT SOUTHDOWN FROM HD. Regular price on this stuff is about $25-30 per bag.

I live in Oakdale, MN right where 94 & 694 meet on the East side of the cities. You pick up from my place. Reply if you are interested.

Each bag is 40 lbs.

They say it's about 90lbs per cubic foot. There's several sandbed calculators on the web that you can input your dimensions and that 90lbs/CF to see what you want.

Sorry, I missed your Q about size.

It's aragonite sand and "Grain sizes vary from 0.18 to 1.2mm"
