It isn't seasonal if you look in the right place. I buy it for the vineyard filters year round at my local ag irrigation supply store. There are a couple different grades based on the size of the sand particle. Probably much cheaper too. Thanks for this post I think I am going to go with sand in my 30 gallon. I think I am going to rinse the sand to clean it a couple times before I add it to the tank.
