You can also just go to Tractor Supply since you are on the eastern half of the USA and buy Safety Absorbent aka Safe-T-Sorb. It's also Calcined Clay just like Turface but it's in a different color scheme (in my opinion, it looks better). Here it is in one of my old tanks:



It also has the advantage of being at a normal store you just walk in and get. Plus it's very cheap, like 7 dollars for a 40lb bag if memory serves.

bag looks like this:

Ok, thanks I’ll go in and look for that! I’m hoping it’s the same color, I’m not a fan of black or white substrates. I go for a more natural look and the stuff in your picture is perfect.
