    I asked the feed store for oyster shell and they said they don't carry it but they have something like it. I forgot the name:( maybe hard as rocks or something

    huh never heard of it...I would be careful what those workers at the store tell ya. they try to sell people the pool grade DE and tell them it's the same as the other stuff! [​IMG] Maybe take a pic of it to show here. I bet someone has seen it if it's ok to use. I hear grinding up dried cooked egg shells are like oyster shells too and you can use that for free [​IMG]

    It is oyster shell just processed different and it looks like little rocks.
