reef sand..

Hi all, im new to reef/saltwater tank myself. I got a quick question to ask, I just added reef/saltwater sand. Do I need to rinse it first before adding it into the tank? or will the filter clean out the water later on TIA

I would rinse it. It'll help remove any impurities and reduce the number of minute particles. Assuming, of course, this is not live sand. This being said, I did not rinse mine, dealt with a dust storm for a week, but am fine now. I think either way is acceptable.
