I went to the local cement plant and got what they call Mason Sand. Its just silica sand. Thats what I am using in my 75 right now I really like it. Its about $5 for 100lbs but you do need to rinse it well. Not as clean as PFS but about the same size and heavy enough that it doesn't blow around and when you turn it with your fingers it just sinks right back down.

What size tank are you needing it for? I have some black 3m sand I could part with when you pick up your fish ... Just needs to be rinsed and it's ready to go.

Have some shells too ....

And some tanks ....
