Thanks so much! I got the play sand from home depot, but you can find it pretty much anywhere (at least during the spring and summer). During the colder months you could try your local landscape or hardware store. The great thing about play sand is that it is really cheap and very natural looking. I got 100 pounds of it for 2 dollars because home depot was having a sale, but it usually runs around $2.50 for a 50 pound bag. Another alternative is pool filter sand (PFS), which is usually a little bit cheaper. However, I don't really like it because it is usually very bright and that can stress the fish. By the way, the pictures make my sand look blinding for some reason, it is actually relatively dark. If you have anymore questions, feel free to ask.
