    Hi, can river sand be used in aquaria?

    Also, can melted snow be used as aquarium water? :lol:

    Well, yes to both provided it's not chemically poluted in any way, but I would boil both before adding to any tank. Childrens play sand and tap water might be a safer option, though.

    I guess it depends where the river sand is collected from...on average I'd have thought it would be best just for decorative touches, to get a natural look.
