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.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

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.
