Mangrove mud

There are mangroves in my area and the LFS said they're rich with nutrients which makes them great for a refugium. I read up a bit on the Internet and I'm not sure the LFS is right. It seems they're ideal for brackish water and contain a lot of sediment. Not sure it's the best thing. Any thoughts?

I was thinking of just going to the beach and digging up some sand and use that. It's typical white sand that's around here which I assume standard silica sand.
