Where to get Black Diamond Blasting Sand?

Hi everyone, I just wanted to know where I could get some Black Diamond Blasting Sand. I'm using it to cap my flourite. Can I get it at Home Depot? Lowes? I live in Vernon Hills, Illinois
Thanks!

go to menards they have a black blasting grit. works like black diamond, or sounds like it does.

I have it in three tanks
--clean it well, really well.
--when you first put it in it will have a grey/brown layer on top, that will disappear as snails/fish mix it up/

'bout $5.00 a 50lb bag

20L My Other Tank: OEBT Shrimp
40B Inlaws Tank: 2 goldfish
75 Main Tank w/ sump: 5 Glossolepis pseudoincisus, 5 Melanotaenia boesemani, 10 Melanotaenia praecox, 5 Melanotaenia lacustris, some cories, a bn pleco and rainbow fish fry

+1 to this, I got the same stuff when I was in Chicago, cheap and convenient seeing as ya'll have Menards all over the place.

You shouldn't take life to seriously. You'll never get out alive.

Menards here has Black Blast for $8/50lb bag. That's what I use for all my neo tanks.

RAOK Club and BBRR Club! My thinking has been invert-ed!
