You can use the silica based play sand with no problems. It just won't buffer your system like the aragonite will. Also, it may be a little rough for some inverts like burrowing snails and soft bellied fish, but in a pinch it will work just fine. Just make sure you get the play sand, not construction sand. Play sand has to be washed and sterilized before it can be marked play sand.
