Have you tried getting your local Home Depot to do a stock transfer from a store that does stock it? I've heard of a few rare instances where this has actually worked, maybe you'll get lucky. As far as shipping some to you I've done a lot of research on different shipping methods and Grayhound bus is about as cheap as it comes but it still isn't really feasible.
alrmc4, you mentioned walmart is stocking it by some "castle name" I actualy was going to post this question myself.
I went to my HomeDepot and found ONE bag of southdown sand and cheered! Literaly sitting right next to it was a pallet full of sand in a nearly identicle bag! Same colors, same words same little kid cartoon on the front and everything. Looking closely I found there were three differences:
Onc said "Southdown" in big letters at the top of the bag, the other did not.
Also, the other bag had "Oldcastle Stone products" in little letters at the bottom, the southdown bag did not.
The oldcastle bag said "not recommended for aquarium use" in tiny letters near the bottom of the bag.
Is oldcastle the same as southdown? same company etc? The sand itself looks identicle as well.
