And, YIKES! Sand from Daytona Beach?! Good luck with that. They still let people drive on the beach so there is no telling what is in it. Not something I would risk. Considering the amount of money in my tank there is no way I would cheap out on sand like that. The beach I live on is a federal reserve, nothing for miles and miles and miles, and I still would not risk it.
wait, it's silica sand? i'm not questioning your expertise but i always thought beach sand is either crushed coral or rocks

Not an expert but... Most beaches of the world are silica sand. You need to get to the reefs to get aragonite, or dig real deep.
