Pearl City Member-Black Sand from the sandman

Just thought I'd drop in here and say aloha and ask if anyone has used sand from The Sandman over in Mapunapuna. It's a sandblasting co. and I got some black sand from a friend that got it from them and plan to get some more for my 75 gal tank. Just finished the stand for the 75 and now I am trying to collect all the deco for it. Got a current NOVA Extreme T5 2-bulb fixture and a RENA XP3 can filter. Gonna try the RENA brand this time around. Anyways, if anyone's interested, here's my pic link.
Look for the aquarium album somewhere on the right...

great pics

I know this post is late, but FYI- I recently got a huge 50# bag of monterey sand from Mr Sandman. They had different grades. It only cost like $26. I heard several local stores buy from them and resell in smaller bags. I rinsed it three times, but it was quite clean from the beginning.

Where did u get your driftwood and slate from? It's so hard to find here in Hawaii w/o paying an arm and leg! Thx!
