CaribSea Aquarium Substrates ( sunset gold )

Has anyone used it in their tanks? I got a 42g bowfront in my basement with no fish in it and want to convert it to saltwater. I usually get LS from a friend and from other peoples tanks, but I like the tan color of the sand. It kind of looks like play sand color (maybe a little darker). I want to go with a darker sand, just not black. Any input would be great. Thanks!

As long as you have powerheads pointing at the surface for good gas exchange you shouldn't need to worry about the sands buffering capacity.
