Sand bottom options?

I have 3 angelfish in my 44 gallon pentagon. It seems as if the two of the angel fish have paired or maybe thy are just going through their pecking ritual thing where they figure out who is the thought? Anyone I would like to move the one angel fish that is being harassed to an empty 30 gallon I have once I get it set up and cycled. My question is what type of sand would work for the bottom. I've heard of pool sand. What is the cheapest type of sand I can get for the tank?

I used pool filter sand for my 30 and my 10 and it's great! It is cheap too, it was around $10 for a 50 lbs bag. Any pool supply store around u should have it.

I used pool filter sand in my 80 gallon. It was $5.50 for 50 pounds at home depot.
