Is the sand new or used?
Personally I never use used sand. You never know what problems they had with their tank and some algaes can live dry for quite a long time.
I use pool filter sand in almost all my aquariums. It's a nice tan color with some specs of other colors and it needs virtually no rinsing for dusty or cloudyness like play sand.
Here is a picture of my 46 bowfront with pool filter sand to illustrate the color of it. And it's only $12 for a 50lb bag so 1 bag can do your whole aquarium.
Just food for thought.
