Where to buy Southdown or Old Castle in FL

Help!) I am setting up another tank in my collection. I want to use Southdown, Old Castle, or Yardright sand for my bed. I can't find it at my local Home Depot. Anyone out there know where I can find the stuff? How about you Reefrunner?

There is a place in either Ft Myers or Ft Pierce, that provides the sand for Southdown. I want to say it is Marcanos Industries, or something like that. They will sell it to you for about 20 per ton. I have been searching for their telephone number and address, but I can't find it anymore.

salty,

i don't live in florida but, ifound anouther retail placethat sells old castle. it's called Meijer's. do you have those down there? it was $2.98 for a 50 lb bag. Meijer's is like a grcery store with a department store all in one.

that might not help you anyways

OK, I did some digging, and even contacted a guy that used to have the address (I got it from him originally) and the closest I can come is...

Marcona Ocean Industries Ft. Pierce, FL might also try AES/Atlantis, as I don't believe it is called Marcona anymore.
