Best substrate for S/W

I would tend to think anything that is silica based sand, could possibly harm soft, bottom dwelling inverts/fish. I am not sure what pool filter sand is made of.

++Edit+++
High-rate sand filters use a special filter sand, normally .45 to .55 mm (also known as pool grade #20 silica sand), because it has sharp edges that separate particles, allowing filtration to take place.

This is what I found on a couple of sites.
