No it won't hurt a thing for it just to sit there and runthrough the ph.
I have (1) 50 lb bag of sand you can have...again, if you are making a trip north you can stop by and pick it up.
Well it might have been cheaper for me to drive to Chicago and pick up some sand but I bit the bullet today and bought the CaribSea at $30 a bag. Bought 4 bags. I figure there are so many things I have to be patient on.. this is one of the things I could do to get things rollin even though it cost more than I liked.
Thanks again guys... I am so glad you are all here.
