Id wager that if it's illegal to sell, then it's probably also unlawful to posess as well. I can see the reasoning since Hawaii's oceans are capable of sustaining reef life, and inroducing life forms alien to the reefs of hawaii can have devestating repercussions.

The bagged live sand is not a waste of money, and I have used enough of that and the dry sands in various different situations to see a real difference. The AragAlive sand is put out by Carib Sea and is available on the internet, and deliverable to both California and Hawaii. Try checking Dr Fosters & Smith website, they carry most of that stuff.

Taking rock or sand from the ocean is not a good idea even if it were allowed. Pollution levels are so high... and some of those types of pollution are not things you can remove from an aquarium once it is contaminated. To obtain something that is safe enough to use in an aquarium you would have to go at least 10 - 20 miles out to open sea to find it.
