Sounds like, should I decide to use my Score of Free Play Sand... I need to hope that it is not very pale, or use it instead of salt on the ice this winter,... and I should rinse it excessively!

I can only get the Quikrete Play Sand that is a mix of white/black/tan/gray. Just avoid pure white, whatever type it may be.

Switched the substrate over tonight. Way more excited about getting everything going this time again. Also the color looks great under the LEDs....loving that shimmering look! All the plants are planted, and the wisteria and water sprite are floating. I may plant some of the wisteria later, when I figure out where to put it.

I switched the substrate and I am very happy with it. No clouding when planting and moving items. Love it!

I also placed my root tabs in there as well, and also added some dwarf hairgrass. Done messing with it for a while, not its time to see how everything blossoms.
