    PFS is supposedly the best and I'm leaning towards that.

    FYI - The Quikrete sand is pre-washed. Extremely clean. Either one would be good.

    I use PFS in my tanks as well and love it. I did rinse it well beforehand but was probably not necessary. Also not sharp like play sand which is good because i have corydora and have seen play sand rode the barbels. just my 2 cents
    Water changes are key to healthy fish!

    Is top fin a good brand for stands? I've looked at the reviews and see that some are rating it 1/5 stars. What?!

    I want the 75g native oak stand. Your opinion?

    I sae online that your tank/hood combo is on sale at Petsmart right now for 205. You should check when the sale ends because it said it only lasts 8 days and I dont know when it started.

    I have no suggestions on a stand (I have a 75 gallon tank waiting for a stand too). Think I will have to break down and borrow tools to make one.

    Good luck.

    Well if you wanted too and didnt care too much about looks too much, you can make it out of a few cinder blocks and 2 by 6...
    A sheet ove it makes it look better...
    I used a stand like that for about 6-8 months for my 55g worked fine

    Well, I don't want it to look like crap, so looks matters a little. I do like the Top Fin stand I posted, but I would like y'alls opinion.
