Sorry that's definitely what I ment! I'm getting sand from reef rock definitely! I may end up getting it from petsmart if it's that much cheaper there's just not one close to me. Petco is whats convienent. I honestly may have enough money to get it all I'm just playing it safe while I figure it out! I also wanna get a 15 gallon for my QT.

I can drill the 5 gallon it's not that big of a deal was just checking. My plan is to have my 32gallon storage on my patio and use 5gallon buckets to fill it and then when I need the water use 5 gallon buckets to transfer. I know it sounds like a ton of work but it's really my only option. My problem is because the way my apartment is set up there is no hose hook up on my patio and so I have to have the 32 out there its my only place and the sink in my kitchen is closest but the water pressure is terrible! And so I'm left with the sink in my bathroom which is fine but I can't run a hose from there to the bucket through my living room which is carpet to the patio.

It's a lot of work I know but it's what I gotta do

He had a large tank too so that'll mean he's got alot of rock.
I've been checking them almost everyday! That and south Florida. It's just transporting im worried about. I'm gonna keep looking though!
