I hope you mean to use LS as the top layer. It doesn't take much LS to make the rest of it live. All you need it is some LR and perhaps a cup or two from other tanks (of people you know and trust). Avoid the bagged sand that's sold at the LFS and is called LS.

I'm pretty sure that the HD's in Ohio have carried 'Tropical" play sand in the past. Look for it in the garden section.

I don't have a picture of the Old Castle bag which is the newest incarnation of Southdown...
