I just got a bag of pool filter sand that im gonna use for my P tank and my feeder tank. Is it safe? I heard that it has something called silicates in it ? Is that harmfull? Caus Mine just says filter sand for pools on the bag. It looks more like real tiny white gravel than real sand. The grains look like small white crystals. the 22Kg bag cost me 8$ cdn. So is it ok to use ? Thanks

ive read of lots of members on this site using pool filter sand, so i wouldnt be concerned. just make sure you use the proper procedures of cleaning it and whatnot

I currently am using pool filter sand and I haven't had a problem thus far.

I highly recommend washing it THOROUGHLY first. I still have some slight cloudiness due to the sand.
