i was using crushed coral or CC but then went DSB (deep sand bed) Much better and looks much nicer. If you can find southdown sand or old castle sand use that . As long as it says tropical play sand from the carribean sterilized etc. Southdown has a picture of a little boy on it and it is a blue and red bag.

I am also in the process of doing the same thing right now.

If you go here, you will be able to calculate exactly how much you will need based on how deep of a bed you want.
