    Hi guys,
    I am thinking of using playsand in a new tank I am starting. Would appreciate it if any members using playsand in their diplay tanks could post one or two pics so I can check it out.

    Thanks

    Hey Rock Pool. As long as the sand is washed properly it will be fine for your tank.
    I think Vipers tank's substrate is playsand.
