Cool, I ran all over town, with my vinegar and tested all kinds of sand....people must have thought I was crazy! LOL!!

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

You can use the silica based play sand with no problems. It just won't buffer your system like the aragonite will. Also, it may be a little rough for some inverts like burrowing snails and soft bellied fish, but in a pinch it will work just fine. Just make sure you get the play sand, not construction sand. Play sand has to be washed and sterilized before it can be marked play sand.
