I am thinking about getting some black diamond blasting sand, the coarse grit. The only thing that concerns me is if it's safe for bottom dwellers. I have heard that the sand is sharp. Won't it harm the fish?
Yikes is right.It's not sharp. My Cory's seem fine with it. I've not read anything bad about it.
In fact, I read where somebody actually used crushed glass as an experiment and none of his Cory's lost barbs. Yikes!
Does the one you use doesn't have that spec sheet?This looks scary...
Safety data sheet lists toxicity, etc... Maybe this is standard disclaimer?
Ok thanks I'll wait for the spec sheetsI'll have to check. The black diamond sand I'm using looks awesome and has lots of people using it, so I know it's safe. Not sure it's available up in Canada.
awesome! thanks a lot. I'll still try small scale application first but big help. thanks again!Double checked, ingredients are identical. Should be fine. For some reason yours lists level 4 for oral and mine is level 2. Perhaps different labeling up there.. lol.
ok will do again THANK YOU!Be sure to rinse it really well. Somebody even used a screen to sift it and got it super clean. There is a lot of dust in it. Took me awhile to get it to rinse clean, half a bag at a time.
Looks to be the same as BDBS but slightly more coarse which is a good thing, IMO. Wash with a few drops of Dawn dish soap, rinse well and you should be good.Do you guys know if I cam use this blasting sand?

I have cories and kuhlI loaches and they have no issues with BDBS.
