Yep, they have one right by my house. $10 for 20lbs. Cant afford that for a 115G tank.

Guessing that is because not so many pools there. Supply and demand?

On a hunch I called another Leslies and PFS is $8.99 for 50#. The one by my house now says they have it for that price too. I think the guy that I talked to first was running a scam or something. I wish I would have gotten his name. Looks like I am taking the Play Sand back to Lowes and getting the PFS from Leslies. Thanks HN1.

Anytime man. Glad you found it cheap, it's a lot easier than play sand!

What do you mean by easier? Is it more weighted?

It seems to be a slightly larger grain size and less "dusty". Much easier to rinse.

The 75 has a mix of various gravels from multiple moves, mostly caribsea mixes. We have PFS in our planted 120 and 8 nano. Aragamax in our reef.

Has anyone experienced problems with things just as jawfish or cleanup crews not wanted to be on/in/work around your PFS bed? I'd hate to use PFS only to find out no one wants to clean it up, such as a sand sifting starfish
