    Sand Substrate

    Can someone tell me what kind of sand we should mix with our crushed coral for the substrate in our new 75? I heard something about sand out of a little kids sandbox. Maybe a better question is who is stealing sand from little kids????:cop:oof: :angel:
    Cheers,

    Cool

    If your mixing it with crushed coral just buy 1 bag or caribsea or any fine reef sand at your LFS.

    Mpleleaf,
    I was referring to Mike's question.
    So from what I undertsand, there is now another brand sold in a blue bag which also states that it is Caribbean sand? Is it made by OldCastle?
