Question

Is this fine GRAVEL or sand?

I see people making comments calling it sand but what I'm looking for is a fine gravel. Sand would be too fine for what I want.

answer 2
It's a moderately coarse sand, or very fine gravel. I would call it sand... but it's really a matter of opinion. I would probably compare it to instant coffee granules with regard to granule size.

Depends on how deep you want the sand to be in the end... 5-8 bags would probably be preferable to obtain a 2+ inch depth.

Add a pound to a pound and a half per gallon. The more sand the less nitrates in the long run. Check out New York Steelo on u tube
