All I was saying is that we tend to trust labels more then we trust common sense.

Exactly. That sand was dredged up by a diesel backhoe or bull dozer of some unknown beach or quarry. Sent through many machines from the back of a truck.

I am assuming that the little feller brought some of the bright white sand that panama beach is famous for, and it was pre oil spill. I think the worst thing in it would be some sun tan lotion or a cigarette butt. Rinse it.

Don't tell anyone, but my entire sand bed is rumored to be from the bay here in tampa

@raimond-- that guy that gathered water from the ocean? did he black it out for a week?

I don't know if he did anything to the water before adding it to his tank. I met him at the beach and not at his home. When I would visit his his home on occasion the tank did not look appealing at all.

I would say that eveything revolves aroung two rules:
(1) Murphy's law: anything and everything will happen and It will happen at the worse possible time.
(2) Everything and everything in life can be corrected by using common sense and a little knowledge. read, read, read!!!!!

Hello fellow Tennesseean! I do wish we had a beach. It would mean I would spend a lot less on tank stuff...

According to bp there is bacteria that is eating up the oil and that the new bacteria is going to be better for the AQ people. more so if you have a saltwater setup.
