I've taken the first step in getting my rapidly growing Clowns a newer and better home.

getting the new tank home picts

I can hardly wait till 'first water' and 'first fish' in the new tank happens! But there's sooooo much planning and work - polishing out the scratches, building a stand, plumbing, plants, substrate etc.

While exploring the nearest building supply store looking for materials for the stand I walked down the aisle that had sand and the question came up if any of this sand is suitable for aquarium use.

What is the criteria for sand that is acceptable sand for aquarium use?
Can standard playground or construction sand be used?
Where did you get the sand that YOU used?
