    Hi Planters
    Ive been looking for Silica gravel/sand thats used in a swimming pool filters for ages.
    Its golden in colour and about 2mm/3mm in grain size,i would like to get a hold of this for a nano set up.
    I think George Farmer used something similar for one of his set-ups, but i cant find the post.
    Any info would be appreciated.
    Regards
    hoggie

    Hi Paul
    That is the substrate I'm after, but they don't ever have it in stock whenever I'm in a Maidenhead Aquatics.
    Which is a pain I only need about 7 to 8kg.

    Hi Hoggie
    I've had the same problem. Different Maidenhead Aquatics stock different unipac products, so you could try ringing different stores to see which ones have it in. My local one ordered it in for me, but that could be because me and all the staff are on a first name basis :lol:. Worth a try.
