Sandtastic Sand

Someone recommended this sand, the floral type, in another forum. They had had it in their aquarium for a year and not toxic, cleaned well, did not compact etc...

I wouldn't be interested in any but the white, browns and tans. But, it is so hard to find just the right shade of these that I may try some of this sand in a small aquarium because they do offer so many options in the earth tone colors.

Edit: This would not be for those who want a cheaper option, because PFS sand will be what you would want in that case. This is an option for those looking to find a particular shade for their aquarium- which there are not many options out there for that.

Wonderful colors. I saw several I would choose if I had a new tank to set up.
