Heres what the problem is that I can think of. People putting there fish in the tank without properly cleaning the sand so theres lots of dust in the water. That is what probably kills there fish. Bettas are smart and wont eat sand haha.

I don't know what moonsand has in it, but I would not use any kind of colored or craft sand unless it was specified for fish tanks.

You can buy some play sand from Home Depot for about 5.00. Play sand is really dirty so you'll really have to wash it out, but it won't hurt your fish. Or you can use pool filter sand, which is a lot cleaner than play sand. You can find pool filter sand online or at some sort of pool specialty store. Or you can use silica sand which is used for sand blasting. There are many options, but I would definitely stay away from moon sand.
