    I got this from a local reefer 2 years ago. It was a 5" or so DSB in a 55g.
    It smells, but its free. Just needs a good washing.

    Rich (Lefty) gets what he needs and the rest is free to whomever needs it. I'll split it up into 4 buckets. Please bring a good condition 5g bucket in trade.

    I'll bring this to the meeting this Saturday.

    I thought it's not good to use old sand because they absorb's phosphate ....

    Well, it is bad to reuse sand without first rinsing it. But I haven't heard about phosphates, so I don't know. But it is kinda strange to consider sand to be a disposable item, like paper cups.

    Fill a 5g bucket up 1/4 way with sand, add tap water, swish, gargle, spit, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, ice cream, repeat. After 5 or 6 times the water will be clear. Dump in new bucket. Repeat until bucket is 3/4 full. Next day drain off water at top. Break back loading into truck. Give away.

    A final rinse should be done with RO water, but I don't have that much.

    Dudley, if there is enough for a 4th bucket, then it will be yours. I have to see how many buckets I actually fill.
