I used to have a place to get ahold of Black Beauty, or black diamond blasting sand in the 20/40 grit. I have lost that information :( anyone know where I could get ahold of several 50lb bags?

Tractor Supply Co, hardware stores, farm stores.
Don't forget to rinse it, there's an oil slick on it.
Damn, you guys are QUICK!!! lol Thanks! I have about 5lbs left from the last time I bought some, which is not enough for a 75g tank lol.

I just redid my 75g with bdbs, you can see it from the link in my sig, and I used about a bag and half or one pound per gallon. Two bags should do it unless you are going really thick. Mine is capping dirt and is about an 1 1/2 thick or so.

I generally have thicker spots of substrate in different areas depending on how I scape the tank. I will just grab 3 bags just in case, and have extra for future scapes lol.

By the by, anyone know what the price was over at Tractor supply? I am going to head that way and only want to bring what I will need lol.

yep, that's the place. I ended up getting it from Tractor supply. There is a Big R near me now as well. I think they carry it as well.
