    Hi! I'm looking to use pool filter sand for one of my tanks and the only place I'm aware of right now is east coast pools? Is there anywhere else I can buy it?

    I heard it's better than using play sand as it doesn't float up as much

    Oh. That's a minor issue to go through the trouble of finding pool filter sand.

    All sand should sink. If they float, usually its because they are fine enough to be stuck on the tension of the water surface. Even then, its just a minute amount and easily solved. Just fill water until it's just above the sand. Then simple pat or tap any floating sand to make them sink.

    Or soak the sand before adding to the tank. As long as every grain is wet, none should float.

    I think you can check with Fluidra (https://www.fluidra.sg/contact/) - they might carry Astral Pool sand.

    I managed to get a 20 or 25 kg bag, 0.4 to 0.8 mm, quite clean. But I got mine through a friend who does work on swimming pools. Not sure if you can buy direct.
