When the US distributors first started their online magazine, their website 
stated that Power Sand contained Pumice, peat, and a nutrient-rich clay.  
That is the "propaganda I refered to.  Users of the product advized me that 
it contained pumice gravel in varying sizes, depending on the intended depth 
of the tank (what's the point of that?).  1/4 inch seemed like a good size, 
so That's what I went with.  The descriptions I got made it to be mostly 
pumice.  That would make it mostly non-organic.

Is it possible that Amano is distributing a different product under the same 
name in different countries.  If the stuff is very dark and contains chunks 
of wood, then Amano is making a killing by re-packaging potting soil.
