Well I've tried to get 3M colorquartz. The lady who answered the phone was a real _____ to me and I finally just said cya.
So there is no other place near me who is listed on the 3m website.
The local pool place only deals with contractors.
Whatever will I do?
Moonsand? -> carried at my LFS. may be able to get enough of it for my 55g if I bring more plants in for store credit.
Flourite black sand -> would have to get lfs to special order it... not the cheap alternative of substrates I had in mind. Seachem's though so it must be good
Also I think it might raise Ph?
Anyone have any Ideas?
Think I'm going to the petstore to talk to my friend there (the fish manager)
see if I can get a discount if I take the paperwork to apply for the job early.
Any other suggestions? I've heard of black beauty, any ideas on where that can be found?
Furthermore, I really wanted a cheap sand opposed to spending $100 on substrate because this will be a "test tank" of a new method for Petstores for plants I'm trying out. If I wanted good quality planted substrate ADA AS would be what I would want. But I just want cheap black sand!!
Tank will have all epifites so I can learn to dose the WC as well.
