Sand for new set up

I am starting a new 125 FOWLR and purchased the following sand "Carib Sea Aragonite - Seaflor special grade reef sand". I thought it was what I wanted but when I google it for reviews it seems that everyone that has it has either a DSB or a Reef tank.

I'm only doing a 1in sand bed and fish only..... will this sand work for me?

Also, one website says it's good for burrowing fish / inverts and another says it's not -- anyone know?

I don't know about the brand, but I have argonite sand in my FOWLER and it is working fine. Now I do have several nassarius snails and I have a goby that dug a burrow and I have a deep sand bed. Haven't had any problems with the argonite!

It was a nice choice. The grain sizes are big enough that they won't blow around.
