No. Its preferred to use washed dry sand. Live sand will carry too much die off and can cause ammonia spikes.
Simply buy dry sand wash it in a bucket with distilled or Ro
and place it in the tank. A few cups a week will avoid any problem.
Adding live sand to a running tank is a bit more complicated and can be risky if not done correctly.
