    I bought 50 punds of play sand for my 10 gallon dwarf puffer tank from lowes. The bag was different (clear) and only cost like 5 dollars at the most. Dwarf puffers are not really hardy so since they are doing fine in it, I'd say it's good. Just make sure you wash it good.

    Play sand works just fine. I used to have it in my crabs tank, but I replaced it bc it started to harbor algae and was a pain when I did water changes.
