    Pool filter sand vs live sand

    Trying to keep the budget down on my setup and was thinking about buying pool filter sand instead of live sand. Any advice on this and should I add 1 bag of live sand to the pool sand? Right now i have dry rock that I want to seed also will live sand help seed the rock? Thanks

    I wake up measure my tank to see how much sand I need and discover my tank is actually a 150gal not 125g guess my tank grew.

    I have never used it before but I did google pool filter sand and from what I can find I wouldn't use it because it has other stuff in with the sand if I were you I would have a look in ebay , local adverts ect and try and find some one who is shutting down there tank and get some sand from them . At least it will be seeded as well
