I'm not 100% sure, maybe someone else can help. I've read different things on sandblasting sand depending on type (copper sag might not be good, and some of these sands can be coarse and might injure fish).

Sandmans Sandblasting sand for FW aquarium

Blasting sand, what brand?

I am almost sure I have heard it used. Found 2 100 pound sacks on the highway today. One was busted so I got the one that wasnt busted
