Could have got 40lbs of this B&W cichlid sand for $5, But I was too busy to jump on the deal when I came across it.
The next time I was in Petsmart, I took a look at the gravel section and found a 20lb bag of the same cichlid sand for $35.
$70 worth of gravel for $5
So pissed @ myself.
If you have a BigAl near you, then you could get it cheaper.
When it comes to gravel, go to the store, look at EVERY bag. Figure out what size you want. Gravel that's small is easier to clean, and the fish may be able to get at any fallen food before it decays.
