I got mine for $17.32 out the door. Regular price is $24.46+tax. They will have the sale until they run out of it. They have around 20 bags left. They only have it in black and white.

That stuff is awesome. It holds a slope unlike any other sand I've used. :)

Just an update:

Just called. The lady I spoke with said they only have the S grade in stock right now in black. Hours are M-F 7-4. Gonna have to take a trip down there and pick up some.

I wouldn't use the S-grade for anything other than a nano tank. Too deep of a layer could easily become anaerobic because of the smaller particles.

Was planning to use it on a 4 gal & a super small pico. Not planning on planting any stem plants so a thin layer should be fine.

The cichlid forum guys have been using fairly deep layers of S-grade w/ no ill effects reported so far. But they usually have fish that dig into the sand so that probably helps w/ keeping the substrate turned over.

Yeah, it should be fine in a nano. I've used the S-grade in a 2.5 gallon setup before and it worked well. Did you know that most places will mix colors for you too? Our club got a mixture of brown, tan and black that looks pretty nice.
