The play sand looks great! I think I will be using play sand as well, I live in Wisconsin, so I don't look forward to cleaning it, but....

Just a word of caution. Your filter intake looks a little close to the sand... You might want to raise that an inch or two, just in case some of the fish decide to play sand angel next to the filter intake... That sand will your impeller apart quickly.....

Looks great! I've done sand in several of my tanks and I really like the look. Your cories will definitely appreciate it as well!

20 gallon long: 3 adult Neolamprologus similis + about 11 fry of various ages; low light planted tank
20 gallon long:2 freshwater dwarf puffers (Puff Puff and Poofer); medium-light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Wormy; low light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Dante; low light planted tank
2, 5.5 gallon tanks that are currently empty (I see more fish on the horizon )
