I'm starting up a fish tank for the first time in years and thought I'd join a community for reference. I'm wanting to get into saltwater, but want to spend a while 'getting my feet wet' with freshwater again. I'm about to go purchase a 40 gallon tank to start cycling, and haven't decided what I want to keep in there yet.
I do have one question though, I want to use sand from a local beach that I love. What do I need to do to treat the sand and make it safe for aquarium use?
