If it says southdown aragonite sand on it and it is in a blue and red bag with a picture of a kid on it then yes you can.

Oldcastle is the comapany that owns southdown. It may say oldcastle stone company on it but still be blue with a child on the front. "tropical play sand" is the key work here, and it should be white in color. If it says "not recommended for aquarium use" on the bottom, then you have the right stuff!
