Im very interested in the macro rocks and was wondering how long it takes for shipment? As well if i ordered a package with the sand, is it okay to mix it with sand that is already in the tank? thx

it took my rocks a week and I don't know if my sand has even come yet.... if you are using live sand it is not ok to add anymore sand.

Another inexpensive background that I used is poster board from Wal MART
