Actually playsand is very safe (it's for children, which can get it in their mouth/eyes). Construction grade sand is different.
Petco colored sand is potentially unsafe as it is dyed with lord knows what, and the colour can leach into the water, and fades over time.

Here's my low maintenance planted set-up. It gets a dose of fertiliser once a week along with a 25% water change and that's it.

All I am saying is make sure it is okay. What is safe for people is not necessarily safe for fish. Like soap, perfectly fine for humans (even kids and babies), but even trace amounts can kill fish.

The second part is a good point, I thought that sand made for aquariums would be safe for fish... has anyone ever had a problem with this before?

Very true. The 2 brands I've listed before have been used by experienced/new aquarists for a good amount of time and are much loved. :) Coloured playsand could be a different story.
I know coloured gravel eventually loses colour, bad brands leach into the water.. I'm assuming sand is coloured in a similar way so I'm going off of that.

Punkin's 3 gallon tank.


Harvey's 3 gallon tank. The Bamboo has been replaced by 2 Marimo Mossballs and he has a little filter behind the green plant.

Here's Chicory's tank - 3.5 gallon. He actually seems to prefer his silk plant over the live one...it's bigger and fluffier!
