I think the home depot near me changed the bag but not sure of the sand. Has anyone ever used the quickrete for the aquarium? Thanks

I have heard of people using it but if your going for cheap I would use pool filter sand from the pool place . I swear by this stuff. Most pool places sell it for $8-9 for 50 lbs. Nice grain size super easy to clean.

I use it in all my tanks just looks like they changed the bag or company .... Just wanted to see who all has it. It was $4.12 for 50LB on sale here.

That's what I put in my 46 gallon. It seems fine and looks good to me.

All of my aquariums have Quikrete playsand in them. Didn't know about the pool filter sand. Have had the playsand for quite a long time now and no problems whatsoever.

That's what I am looking at for my new 135, a friend uses pool filter sand in his 55. It looks great with it in there.

I know this is an old post but playground sand is yucky. Looks okay in the tank but it clouds up too much. Especially when you have sifters and pit diggers in your tank. PFS is the only way to go when you're going budget substrate from the HD.

Impellers HATE playground sand...crunch crunch crunch!!!
