Looks like DHL will ship one 50lbs bag in a 24X24X24 box for $23.58.

I doubt 3 bags will do. Use this to get a rought estimate.

As a frame of reference I put 1 50lb bag in a 20 gal tank.

Hi Brenden - I'm also in Texas and have been looking for some tropical play sand for a couple of weeks now. Not down here! Seems you just can't get it anywhere. I was about to go buy some silica base sand from a pool supply place. That's about my only choose for "cheap" sand. The LFS wants way too much for it and they only sell it in 15# bags. How much would you be willing to sell me some for? Do you have any left? Would you be willing to sell some? I'm needing about 3 bags.

Thanks

Ron Gleaves

I do not mind selling some sand to a few AA members. I have been helped a lot by people on this board. I have around $5 invested per bag. .4 cubic feet approx 50 lbs per bag. I will sell it at cost but tips are optional
