Sand from the beach

Wrona0306

Hi everyone
What you all thinking about useing sand from the beach in fresh water tank. I know this sound sily but can you use this sand in tank? I wont boiled this sand and wash few times in tap water so what you all think about this idea?

Too much garbage in beach sand that won't wash out. Not only that, but you'd waste way much water doing so.

Pool filter sand is super cheap. Use it

Hi, it’s illegal in the Uk to take sand from the beach so I wouldn’t recommend you do it.
There's also the issue of possible parasites etc another reason to not do it.

if you want that color of a sand, you can get a huge amount of pool filter sand for like 8-10 dollars

Play sand from the local home improvement store is cheap. Or pool filter sand if you don't want to have to spend a lot of time rinsing it.
