I just bought my fish and I put him in a bowl with Stoney River aquarium sand at the bottom. I realized after he was already in there that the bag says to let the sand sit for 48 hours before putting the fish in. should I take him out?! is the sand toxic?! what do I do????

I would assume the 48 hours allows the sand to settle to the bottom. If it's floating in the water it could cause issues with fish and equipment but I have never used that sand so I can be sure that is the reason.

But I don't think it's toxic, just letting it set for a few days won't make it safe.
