Some pool filtration systems use sand for the filtering process. They sell it at all pool supply stores.

Sorry, forgot to mention with my pool filter sand I hand to spend some time cleaning it before I put in my tank. I just put some in a bucket.and flowed water through it while stiring it up until the water was clear. U can find it at ur local pool supply store to get a better idea how it looks I will try to remember to post pic for u.
