COMMENTS

Thanks, i believe its called High Desert Play Sand, we had found it at Home Depot i think near masonry, its only a few bucks for the 50lb bag(i used one for my 55gal, shouldve had another) but it does take a while to rinse out the "milk" in it. But the end result is great. Just maintain it well. Mines over a yr old now and its a little dirty but i might get new sand in if i get the time fish avatar
i like the look of that sand. I've been thinking of doing something like that myself. looks great! fish avatar
