Fairmount Santrol Aquaquartz. I found it at a local pool store for $9.99/50lb bag . It does not say anything on it about being chemically treated. Attached pics of front and back of bags

I found a similar bag on Amazon, except that it says "Standard #20 Grade" and is 4x the price at $39.99/50lb bag. Multiple people on the reviews state that they use it in fish tanks, but not sure if this is the same product or not.

$40 is expensive for PFS in my opinion. I would go to a place that sells Spa equipment and ask to buy 50 lbs from them for like less than $10.00. I think I paid like $8.00.

Right.. I bought the sand in the pictures from my original post for $9.99 for a 50lb bag. I was just googling the brand to see if anyone else had tried it to make sure it was safe when I came across that link on Amazon. The one on Amazon looks very similar, but is selling for $39.99 for a 50lb bag.

That's the same sand I use in my tank! Make sure you just wash it a bunch before using it in your tank!

I use it as well! Nice colour, and not too dusty, but you'll want to wash it.
