    tomayto, tomato
    Mom said is was a Chev-row-let
    Dad said it was a Chev-row-lay
    it's all good

    You might also want to look into Eco complete. it is a very fine sandy texture and contains the nutrients needed already. No buffering required, just pour it in 20.00 for a 20lb bag

    I keep plants in sand and have no problem with any of them (Java Moss, Java Fern, Stargrass, Anubias, Amazon Sword, Cabomba, and a few others) I do not fertilize, well I dont the fish do! :)

    Works well for me!
