Got lucky . A buddy who did a tank build like 9 years ago got 3 more bags then he needed. Been sitting in his basement all along .

Southdown was made of argonite and the new stuff is silicate based sand. I chased it down for a while and even talked to castle about on the phone. It’s gone for good

Glad to hear I am not the only crazy person that has kept the extra southdown sand he has. Granted I only have about 1/2 to 3/4 of a bag left at this point.

Before Southdown was available ESV used to sell dry sand. It was pretty nice, but certainly more expensive than Southdown. Ahhh the good 'ol days!
