Quickcrete SAND is used to make concrete...
To make concrete, mix:
3 Parts Gravel
2 Parts All-Purpose Sand
1 Part Portland Cement

It's just mason's sand that's bagged for small projects.

I think you need cement to make concrete. I don't think you will have a problem with the sand as long as it passed the vinegar test.

i have silica sand in my tank and actually have less diatoms than i did in my other tank using yardright aragonite sand...nor has anyone else i have ever talked to had a problem with diatoms using silica sand it is just part of your tank cycling.....if silica sand causes diatoms then so would the glass on your tank as it is made of the exact same stuff


and quickcrete SAND will not set up in your tank as cmor1701d pointed out it is made to be mixed WITH cement for things such as brick laying and such
