I bought a bag from them and I'll probably buy another one. It's pretty dusty so you should rinse it a couple of times before putting it into your tank. It's incredibly dense so you don't have to worry about it getting kicked up by your filters. However if you have large fish that dig, I'd recommend raising up your intakes well above the sand. I'd split a bag with you but then I realized I might have to use the entire 100lb bag for future projects.
