natures ocean sounds fine, but all i can find when i google the name is bagged live sand. that is good, but expensive.
i prefer to buy the same sand, that's sold dry. it's much cheaper. the only difference is you have to rinse it.

i have a hard time believing that he was telling you the truth about the tang. how big was the fish when you got it? 5" long? if it was about the size of a silver dollar, it was probably a recent purchase.
