I bought a 10kg bag in tesco for £1.87 on Sunday.

5Kg is tiny for play sand. For the average pit you'll need 20Kg.

For info, Tesco price for 10Kg is now up to £2.50

I get from the beach for free and as bonus I get dogs poop and used condoms!

Very good for certain aquariums too, just wash it lots before you use it.

you can get a 15kg bag from argos for £2.99

mcfly666 - do you find it is too fine for the aquarium and hence causes issues with sulphur dioxide? Thinking of using it but will probably have a depth of about 1" max to try and stop this and use some clown loaches to keep it turned over. How deep is your substrate? Think this idea will work?

Works out same as Argos

To be honest it's not too fine for us. Corys and plants seem to really like play sand, to get round the issue of gasses in the substrate you can get a colony of MTS (Malaysian trumpet snails) going. They like to burrow under the sand during the day so they tend to keep the sand moving so to speak.

Good idea with the Clowns, they will do much the same job as our Corys. Plus if you get a load of MTS snails, the Clowns will love to burrow for them (they love snails)

The substrate thickness in our tank is about 2-3 inches, no problem with gasses collecting as of yet. Another idea is to use an under gravel heater, the warmth will get mini currents moving in the substrate. Plants will love you for it.

brilliant the dogs sand pit needs refilling, the little sods have started digging holes in the garden again.
