It looks a whole lot like Nais communis, a fairly common detritus worm. But is it really only 1mm long? That's well down into banana worm/vinegar worm territory.

Too many dorsal fins to be a minnow, so some sort of blue-eye still has to be the best guess. Maybe a sub-adult female? With that prominent lateral stripe fading as she matures?

What you are actually looking for is fired ('calcined') montmorillonite, aka arcillite, rather than the raw clay. So you might want to expand your search terms to include arcillite as well as...

You could try Stalite Permatill.

Due to its high CEC, raw turface is a notorious KH...

Dry turface bulk density is supposed to be about 35 lb/cu ft. So 50 lb would occupy a volume of 50/35 = 1.43 cu ft. Fits nicely in a bag that's roughly 2 ft tall.
