You can use any 100% silicone from home depot or lowes. Just be sure NOT to get any with an anti-mold/bacterial additive as that will kill your fishies.

Yes you can glue sand to it. If you do, there are 2 things i suggest you do.
1: use the largest grain sand you can. the smaller grain sand shows the pipe too much.
or 2: pour the silicone into a plastic tub/cup. mix in the pre=cleaned sand into it till you get a thick paste, then use something like a popsicle stick to smear it on the sanded pipe. This gives a MUCH thicker and even result than just coating the tube with silicone and then rolling it in sand.
Also, the sand on the tube can, and WILL grow algae like crazy. This can however add character to the tube and provide a feeding place for algae eaters like ottos, shrimps, snails, ect...
