If you're up for suggestions, I'd skip the pool filter sand and go with aragonite sand. While I loved pool filter sand in my fw
tanks, I just don't think it looks good in a sw
tank. I was worried about the sand when I started my sw
tank. I always see cloudy tanks after initial setup, and that bothered me. I got my sand in a bundle with my base rock and couldn't be happier. If you've never seen this site, check them out. I couldn't recommend anyone more - www.reefrocks.net
. It's course, but not so course you can see the outline of it. Very similar to the sand you'd see at Myrtle Beach, and areas like that. It's heavy and doesn't blow around, and comes pre-washed meaning no initial cleaning required.
