    Hi Melissa,

    I do remember you from the OCA meeting last week. I am using 3M Colorquartz S-grade sand for ALL of my tanks. It is no longer manufactured but a very similar product is Spectraquartz. It is a very fine sand-like quartz material that is available in lots of colors. It is sold as a pool finish coating.

    Locally, the only place that sells it is N.T. Ruddock, phone # 440/439-4976. They have a website describing the product & showing the colors/sizes available. It is only sold in 50lb. bags.

    I actually mix black, brown, white, buff and blue together to vary the look between my tanks. I really like this product and have had good results growing Crypts, Hygrophila, Vals and some other rooted plants I can't remember.

    Hope that helps. If you know you will be at the OCA meeting in November or at the OCA Extravaganza in Strongsville, I can bring you some samples to look at. Just let me know in advance.
