I haven't had any issues with my mag-float or canister impeller. If rinsed you should be fine.

As someone who has both a fw and SW tank I just want to say I would NOT use blasting sand in my reef personally.

I would go with a pet store brand black and pay the extra money

Pet store brand black sand, is coal slag. So basically the same thing. I KNOW tahitan moon sand is coal slag, and so is the petco brand. So unless you get dyed (which will fade) or colored quartz (impossible to find) you are getting the same thing as sandblasting sand.
