    Many hardware stores carry it, like lowes and home depot. Could also check out a pool supply store. Also can look at sand at landscaping places. I think a 50lb bag of pool filter sand at home depot cost me under 10 bucks.

    You can usually get the pool filter sand at your local pool supply store.

    If you have a Leslie's pool supply store up there, that is where I get mine.
    11 tanks, 5.5g up to 125g(2). Mbuna, Haps, Peacocks, Tangs, wild caught to tank raised!

    Pool supplies store for sure. Otherwise, you can go to a mason yard to get sand.

    Given your New England location, it may be getting late in the season for pool filter sand.
    Big box stores will be clearing it out. Pool and spa shops stock it year round.

    Keep in mind there are two grit sizes in most parts of the country. Most hobbyists I've known prefer the larger grit.

    You have to visit the nearest pet shop and I am sure you will get your sand. But dear use only white sand but don't use the marble white sand because it can stress your fishes.

    A pet shop won't have pool filter sand, I think Home Depot / lowes is your best bet
