Thread: Favorite aquarium sand

  1. #1

    Default Favorite aquarium sand

    I'd like to get a very fine, brightly-colored sand for my axolotl tank. It MUST be fine, as axies have the tendency to eat EVERYTHING. I don't want to put out $20 for a 5lb bag of low-quality sand. Recommendations?

    Unnatural. Like bright blue or purple or white or black.

    Yep, I've got it in most of my tanks. Tractor Supply has it in my area for $7.99/50lbs. They have medium and fine, just DON'T get the bag labeled "recycled". It'll have metal bits in it.

    I prefer Argonite sand. It's white and has a high PH and buffers the PH. As well it has live bacteria to support the nitrogen cycle
