Sure, if using "Live Sand" but in that case, I'd skip the rinse and just let the cloudiness settle out (or instant water change to remove some). Also, if combining "Live Sand" with dry aragonite sand, make sure to put the live on top. LOL
Fill slowly. I'd add an inch of water, then the sand, then a large dinner plate. Fill using the plate to stop from digging a hole with the water flow. Will also minimize stir-up.
Someone stop me! Please! But... not just yet...
