Need help changing substrate

If you are buying playsand, I would try to stay away from silicate based sand. Folks do use it with success, but it is more "glass shard" based, IMO, and might give your sand stirrers/sifters problems.

If your LFS has a tank that he keeps LS in I would use about 5 lbs of that but if its the sand in a bag that Sadie was talking about then I would not spend my money on that. Probably not much alive in that.

That is where I would say I would I have used dry and had impellars seize this is already wet so there is very little particulates that float and no rinsing needed either which is important when doing a 1 day change over tho with the dry you could poke holes in the bags and toss into a bin with saltwater and a filter along with PH this will wet it down as well but takes a few days / weeks to do
