aquarium sand is great! But it would be a pain to clean in a tank that small, so i wouldnt reccomend it. I have sand in my 10 gal but i only do partial water changes so it doesnt effect my sand.

my 3 gallon doesnt have substrate(bare bottom)

I have it in my 2.5 gallon and my 20gal. I do 100% water changes on the 2.5 and it was only annoying the first few times, but after that it never clouds up even though I run my hand real good through the sand while I'm washing the tank out. I love it so much more then gravel especially with my fish who prefer to hang out at the bottom.
