It's a waste of money anyway. There's barely any bacteria in it. Just get some plain sand you like. It's a way to make money off of people who are just starting Saltwater.

Id still double check on the prices of live sand. Most of the time live sand is aragonite sand. I was able to get aragonite live sand on sale and get it cheaper than plain aragonite sand. Pulled the trigger on the live stuff since it was a bit cheaper for me and i wanted white aragonite sand. Pays to look around and do research.
