Is this pool filter sand okay?
I currently have a 35 gallon tank that I am transition to sand and trying my hand at some low tech plants.
I had a hard time finding pool filter sand locally. Both Walmart and Home Depot locally had none. I found some at Canadian Tire (a Canadian hardware/automotive store for those of you not in the great white north,) but after I bought it it’s not exactly what I’ve seen in lots of build threads and how to videos.
It’s .45-.55mm in size, and is much more white coloured than I’ve seen before.
I realize that’s on the low end for size and that it will be more challenging to clean the tank because of it, but anything else I should be concerned with? And how do you guys figure this’ll look in a tank? Nice and carribean tropical, or super unnatural?
Here’s a couple photos.
