I'm looking for a small amount of white/tan sand or gravel. White sand/small gravel is preferred.
I need only about 600-900 grams. Like 1.5 handfuls is enough.

I can trade ADA Amazonia Aquasoil or some plants (Mini Pellia, Windelov, Xmas moss, HC Cuba, S. repens).
Alternatively, if anyone wants to go half on some Carib Sea Moonlight Sand 5lbs, let me know.

Thanks for looking!

I also have some used white sand. It's a small amount (used previously in a 3.7 gallon nano tank, about 1.5 inch deep). I'm interested in the ADA amazonia send me a pm if you are interested.

@corrie: I'm sorry but I cannot travel past Burnaby. I'm limited to public transit.

@wslam: Is your sand very clean? I am looking for sand free of dirt or any impurities.

@Dou: Is ADA Colorado an active substrate? Does it affect pH and GH? I'm trying to keep my pH around 6-6.5 and GH around 4-7.

Nope it's not active. I think the active version is Power Sand which I definitely did not buy. I don't believe it affects pH or gH... not that I know of at least haha. Only thing is it gets cloudy at first so it would be a good idea to rinse it. I actually have a bowl of it already rinsed and dried (did not use all of what I intended to use)... enough to fill like a 500mL bottle probably. I have more that hasn't been rinsed yet though if you do need more.

Edit// Quick note - it's not as bright/white as other sand Just FYI.
