Im after about some coral sand for the bottom of a tank. where can you get some from with out paying outrageous LPS prices.

Also has anyone had experience with sand (beach sand, river sand)- like what you would buy at gardening suppliesas subsrate. Is there any particular sand which is better?

THanks

I just use limestone based beach sand in all my tang tanks. It helps with buffering the ph. The fish dig around in it some (good for featherfins), Vallis grows really well in it (which really surprised me) and it seems heavy enough that it doesn't get picked up by filters. I usually go down to the beach dunes and get it from there as the rain has washed most of the organics and salt out of the upper layers already and its relatively clean and doesn't take too much washing before its ready to go in.

Cheers

James.
