That's "fish bowl" was why I ask that question in the first place. I needed to use it on an out door Koi Pond. I would like to see a two week test of this play sand product on salt water or fresh water just because of the nature of your baseless description of the product regarding aquatic life or fish bowl. If so its much cheater than a 3 pound 15 dollar sand bag from any pet store. New Market for SAKRETE. The answer I got from SAKRETE confuse me as well. I have use a different product for the pond it looks great. Read Less

Answer: 
In the product description it states in may be used in fish bowls & a couple people have commented on how well it has worked in their aquariums in the review section. Which makes the original answer from Sakrete all the more confusing. Who writes the product description? Is it an issue somehow as the waste begins to build up in the sand?

Answer: 
No, you will need to use aquarium sand or pond safe sand. Our sands are mined form the earth and washed then bagged. You should always use sands that are tested to be safe for aquatic life.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great buy! sand was used as the substrate in a saltwater aquarium. Looks great, very clean and aquarium safe. Much less than sand or gravel from a pet store. If you are looking for sand for you fresh and/or saltwater tank this is a great buy!! December 27, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gorgeous in a FISH TANK! You cannot go wrong with the price compared to sand in bags from pet specialty stores. You pay just over $3 for 50 lbs. where as at a pet specialty store, you pay close to $60 for 50 lbs. In the aquarium with any light fixture, this sand almost glows as it is very white and looks excellent in amazon natural tanks as well as imitation reef tanks. You can pull off any them in the aquarium with this stuff for SUPER cheap compared to something that says it's specifically for fish tanks - says in the description that it can be used in fish bowls safely, which is HUGE for a fish keeper. I highly recommend this if you are okay and used to cleaning sand in an aquarium. July 10, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The perfect bedding I bought this play sand to use under my hamster's Carefresh bedding so I could go longer without cleaning his cage. Turns out, my hamster absolutely loves burrowing holes and sleeping in this sand. Watching him do this is so much fun. I would definitely recommend this product to any hamster lover! July 18, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by very good price and quality this item has the lowest price I can find on the playsand market so far, the sand is clean and neat. Other store or website sell the same quantity sand above $10, I don't think it is worthy. July 31, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GREAT PRODUCT This product is great if you have a bearded dragon or other reptile! It is extremely cheap compared to pet store sand. I also recommend this product if you have a fish tank because it is cheap and brings out the color in your tank! July 6, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by price incorrect the price given for my store was $2.50 per bag at the store they have it priced at $3.73 per bag September 6, 2012
