no, but I found some montery bay sand at home depot. I have not used it for my reef tanks but was going to use it for a cichlid tank- the research I did on it for the cichlid tank showed that it is fine. The brand is lapis luster. I is kind of dark brown when wet, so I decided not to use it for my reef.. I spent $1lb for cc and aragonit..
anyone use lapis luster in a reef? it's cheep, cheep, cheep at home depot $5/50lbs.

30g sump/fuge (low flow)

I don't have a reef tank but i do have some # 20 lapis luster in my shell dweller tank here is a pic of what it looks like:

It cleaned up really nicely and it is a very uniform size. I hope that's helpful
