I bought the Eco-Complete cichlid sand from DrsFostersmith. I paid $20 for a 20 lb bag, so that sounds about right. I only needed one bag since it was for a 29g tank.My Ph out of the tap is actually 8.0. It is a bit lower in the community tank due to it being established with driftwood I believe.
As far as getting a "Cichlid" substrate I was curious to any other benefits other than it "looks" like the stuff in Lake Malawi. So I guess the answer is it raises ph is good enought for me. As far as the price goes I am not too familiar with sand. $1 a pound sound high?
