I've heard that the garden basics play sand from wallyworld is Aragonite.hng said:Southdown sand is like some mythical creature that everyone talks about but no one has seen in person. From what I understand the company that made it went out of business. Most people do the vinegar test with sand found at home depot or lowes to see if its predominantly calcium. Personally, I just bought some aragonite from caribsea.
Heh! You should have reminded me about this while you were here, I would have shown you about a dozen bags I have left...hng said:Hmmm, so it's not some mythical creature? Maybe there IS such a thing as Southdown. Wish I had known before I shelled out $20 for a bag of Caribsea :freak:
