    Wash it before you put it in the sandbox too - the silica dust is very bad if inhaled. Same goes for play sand and other silica sands.

    125 - Red severum, bolivian rams, Turquoise rainbows, irian red rainbows, loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, pearl gouramis

    Granted the left over sand wouldn't be all that much, but its also a reminder to you to be mindful about breathing the dust when cleaning it.

    With a 50lb bag, shouldn't be much of a problem. I can't imagine putting more than a a few pounds for the bottom. Thinking about putting some Fluorite sand in with it, mixing the two up? Or would it be more beneficial to layer them?

    It is better to layer the two bottom layer Fluorite and top layer sand. If this is for your twenty one bag of fluorite will do and top off with half of the 50 lb bag. I think you would have one inch of Fluorite and two inches.of sand that way.

    Sounds good, cm12. I found a bigger bag of flourite online for cheaper (even with shipping!) than I can buy at my local LFS, so it'll be that extra 6 days for shipping, but hey, I'm a cheapskate xD lol
