Regular sand is fine, anything that is for Marine or Saltwater tanks should be left for those tanks. I recommend going to your local hardware store. Go to the cement isle and find something called Play Sand, it is $5... for a 50lb bag. This is a lot of sand and a great price at that, you won't get a super unnatural color, but it looks nice and is 100% safe.

You can keep the left overs, use it for another project, donate it to someone, put it in a park, or toss it. It will save you money by throwing the rest out then buying one bag of 2.5lb sand st the petstore.

to wash play sand. dothis in the garden ....place the amount you want in a bucket. blast the sand with the hose into a tornado until the bucket is almost full. immediately SLOWLY tip the bucket on its side and pour out dusty water....

repeat until sand settles within a few seconds leaving crystal clear water.
