No my young padawan learner...LS is usually only available at pet stores, it has to remain wet...there is some ocean water in the bag to keep all the organisms alive. LS is expensive...usually between 25 to 50 dollars for a 20 pound bag, my local PetCo sells a 10 pound bag for 25.99...ha what a rip!

Anyway southdown is good looking and most importantly sterile sand that is cheap, and thats what you should use for your DSB if your HD carries it.

You should place a thin layer of real live sand over the southdown to "seed" the sand.

That should get you goin' quite nice

Peace

The New 105

I'm going to be getting 5 lbs of live sand. Is that enough to get the entire DSB going in about 2 months?
