HELP!!! trouble with sand!!

I am starting a new saltwater aquarium.

I accidently bought 2 bags of argalive sand, that arn't the same type.

one is called a bimini pink i believe and the other is a fiji pink.

I did not know they were different types until I poured them in and looked on the back of the bags.

i poured the bimini first and the fiji on top

Did i make a horrible mistake??????

or will this be fine???

will it affect my fish/live rock etc.??????

Please help me, i cant sleep

It'll be fine, no worries. It might look odd having two different types, but it won't hurt anything.

Haha yeah if you like sleep quit now. Especially if the tank's in your room. Like mine. Every obscure noise = WHAT WAS THAT? DID IT COME FROM THE TANK!?! *Gets up, turns lights on, checks everything for 10 minutes, repeats.*

Mix the sand bed up so that you can't tell that there's a difference. It's a new tank so no worries there.

I actually took down a pile of sand from a corner yesterday and couldn't see inside the tank for 30 mintues. It had all settled in an hour.

Poor fish will get sand in their gills.
