Live Sand Choices

So I'm NEARLY ready to get this 10G Nano going, I'm just stumped on what Live Sand I should be getting.

At the mo I'm torn between Arag-alive Bahamas Oolite and the Fiji Pink.
I'm aware that the Bahamas has a much finer grain size than the Fiji.

I'm really attracted to the whiteness of the Bahamas but could it get blown around in a 10G? (My Powerhead will be a Koralia Nano 1600)

Also if anyone has any photos of either sand in their own tank I'd love to see it properly.

I happen to like the fiji pink, I have used it a few times. The whiter the sand the quicker it looks dirty in my opinion. lol I also have sand that fine and it's ok but I always pick the fiji when getting a new tank setup. Just depends on what YOU like.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I don't suppose you could show me a photo of the Fiji Pink?
I'm struggling to work out how pink it actually is..
