What cheap sand substrate do you use?

  • With all of the super cheap options out there, which ones do you use? I know there are like black diamond blasting sand (really just fine grit sand), some use pool filter sand,and others use playground sand. Are there any other options that you can use or that others use?

  • I’ve seen people use all different types of sand that come in a bulk like pricing/package, such as you noted pool filter sand, play sand, or the black diamond grit blasting sand. I’ve even seen people who try to buy those plastic pebbles (the ones with weight) to use, or the colorful rocks that you see for sale for like 1 bag full (a handheld bag) for $2 (these rocks are cheap when bought in bulk).
