Unfortunately that is the major drawback of playsand. Some people overcome that by growing a lawn of foreground plants, then its green and not so bright for the fish

Great idea. I have seen darker sand at a construction place here in town it was medium tan. I would assume that it would be safe once washed as long as it didn't put too much hardness in the water. I've heard that there are fairly cheap ways to check for that.

hello and welcome.
sorry to hear of your house,
glad to hear you're back to the hobby. :)

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Hi Lainey,
I don't yet have a working aquarium but I did stay in a Holiday Inn Express for the last 24 nights. Thanks for your well wishes.
What kinds of fish things are you involved with?

Lainey, can you help me with the jargon? What is OH and why is OH's happiness important? If you were Mormon I'd translate to "our husband."
