    for me iron is not necessary .

    with a return on many years of their culture, I have never used iron and all my plants are doing very well

Its an 8 grit industrial quartz, by the company name "Unimin". You'll need to call around to industrial type places, masonry, construction supplies, etc.

    Here's a post from someone using "granusil" silica sand, which is a different variety Unimin produces, would also work well for CPs I think? http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/su...lorquartz.html

    Found a photo of the bag online, looks like this.. not the same grit/mesh obviously but the bag design is the same.
    Brie,

    Mesh 40 would be too fine i think. Suggested mesh # is 20 and up from what I understand. But Thank you again for posting the brand of sand. The other stuff that you had shown previously (don't remember where) is what I am trying to find. Adding the info you provided into my "To Buy" section in google notes

    That pic was just for an example of what the bag looks like. The sand i bought is the biggest they make, mesh 8. Super chunky.
