[QUOTE=Scott F;2011034]Just remember...they get paid to sell you things Gravel does look nice and it comes in a lot of pretty colors, and for what they charge it's very expensive per pound.

Now...sand doesn't look that great when you're rinsing it off and it looks dark and you'd think " ugh...this is gonna look ugly." Until it's in the tank and situated. Pool Fliter Sand is pretty bright and clean looking.

So you don't get the IMMEDIATE visual gratification that gravel provides, but you will when it's all in there and prepped.[/QUOTE

Would I have to use a special filter for sand verses gravel?
