    one size fits all.

    You in Swakopmund. Do you not have nice natural sea sand somewhere close? Just wash it as well, due to you having cold water.

    Man, now I'm confused, I thought that we use playsand in the DSB as it has no silica(coz silica is bad for marine?)

    Sea sand that is in the ocean is also silica so how can silica be bad? More people in marine hobby use silica than not. Nothing wrong with it.

    Go get some see sand and cook it, I'm going to do the same, not worth it to pay so much on transport to get a bag play sand, I need about 60kg for the 2 tanks sumps. Play sand was for your future tank , lol
