Is aragonite sand needed?

I'm putting a sand bed in my 20g tank, it's going to be a mushroom tank with a pair of clowns. I am wondering if I need to get aragonite sand or if I can get away with buying pfs. I would only get the pfs If it made absolutely no difference but if the. Arag is Bette I'll buy that.

Aragonite is greatly preferred for a SW tank. I love PFS, but would only use it for FW or Brackish.
