Dry Rock and Sand

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

I am setting up a new tank in a few months in Hawaii and want to bring my rock and sand with me since you cannot collect any from the wild in Hawaii. 

I need about 75lbs of rock and 50lbs of sand. 

Thanks all!

I thought it was legal to collect dry rock/sand in hawaii, but the limits only apply when leaving the island.   I could be wrong, but that's what I remember last.

You can collect dry rock and a bucket of wet sand a day. I use to bring back cool looking dry rock back from Hawaii, also sending it in flat rate boxes few years ago. 
there is also a good black market for coral there, lol.

Illegal reef keeping is even more exciting than the boring legal kind.... :)

      Right now petco has 10# bags of aragonite substrate on sale for $4.89 and if you choose the pickup in store option you can use the promo code pickup10 for an extra 10% off making them $4.40. This ends up being only 44 cents per pound, which is the cheapest aquarium grade substrate I've ever found from a store.

      So I have roughly 1,200lbs of rock that needs to go. I used to have about 600gal of water in large ponds for coral propagation/fun, a couple years back, and this stuff has just been sitting in water ever since.  I would love to trade it for some cool corals and reef friendly fish/inverts as I plan on getting some fine looking torts, zoas in the future.
      Thanks, in advance!

      We're wanting to swap out our current sand with some Reef Flakes or Meso Flakes from Tropic Eden.. is there anywhere to get this locally or do we need to buy online? Thanks!

      Hello, I am new to the forum and had a question that has most likely been asked before but would like to hear it from people with more experience in the hobby. I was wondering what the viability of using play sand as a substrate for a reef tank or fish only tank would be? Thanks
