Sand???

So i have a few questions about sand...

For a saltwater tank do you need Live Sand or can you use Pool Sand like you can in fresh water?

Can you help me out with a good brand and where I can find some?

And also how much sand should i put in a 75gal? I'm going to start with just some live rock.

Live sand is not needed and a waste of money IMO pfs will be fine it's your choice I would do 80lbs in your tank but again depends how deep you want your sand bed

Probably around 2" but I would place your live rock first in case you get any sand sifting fish who might dig under the rock and make them tip possibly breaking glass
