I have not personally used it but have heard of people using it with good results. I think you can get it at farm supply stores.

I have soilmaster select in my tank. Same thing as turface, just different vendor. I've had great success with it. These inert clay substrates (turface, AP stuff, schultz's) are my favorites to use, even after using several enriched substrates.

Check lesco.com to see if they have a store near you, they carry it.

Lowes and Home Depot carry something called Schultz Aquatic Soil. It's pricier, because it only comes in small bags, but it's the same exact stuff, just a light brown in color instead of hte darker Turface color.

aquariumplants.com also sells a substrate, which again is the same exact stuff, just under a different name. Your best bet price-wise is to find locally someone that carries turface, like lesco.com, but those are some other options if you're not able to do that.
