I've started to acquire the necessities to change my former QT to NPT. Guess what,! Lowe's here doesn't carry any Pool filter sand. They claim that Petsmart here carries it. I had to get home to prepare dinner so I haven't checked it out.
I'm beginning to think that this is the worst place in the world to keep fish. The Pet&^#@ chains don't carry anything but the cheap easy stuff. I also can't find any potting soil w/o ferts. It is too expensive to ship that stuff (soil & sand) in. Buying it from the chains puts the cost up like anything else sold but them for aquaria.
I haven't checked HD yet and there is a local sand & gravel company. I suspect that a request for 25 to 50 # of sand will result in much hilarity.
