Hi everyone,
Don't know if I'm in the right section - apologies if not.
Does anyone know where i can get some white, or off-white, silica pool filter sand for substrate.
I'm in Surrey/Langley & have called several pool supply stores in & around our area, and all they can offer is a beigy-brown pool filter sand, in 50 lb. bags for around $30. Is there not someplace I could buy 20 lbs. or so at a reasonable price, as near white as possible ?
Anybody ? Thanks.
Paul

Hmmm

i would like to know more about this type of substrate. Do i have to wash it before putting in my tank? and other than the cool colour how is it better than normal sand?

I have about a hundred pounds unused, pre rinsed pure white silica and sitting in a clean bucket.
I backed off from it because I was told that the silica can harm the mouths and gills of bottom sifting species (which I keep).
cheap cheap
Drop me a pm if you are interested
