I've read many reviews in which people say the same thing about the slag being sharp. I suppose it may depend on the 'batch' you get, but I wouldn't risk bottom dwellers on Black Diamond.
I do have Tahitian Moon Sand in several tanks, and have kept Kuhli Loaches on it for well over a year with no problems, though they can't burrow underneath of it - I think it's too heavy for that.
TMS is a great sand for beginners, since it stays put (more or less) I've never had issues with it floating into the filters - even when my Bolivan Rams were spawning, and intent on digging up the entire tank. Though I did have to pay a bit of attention to that with the lighter pool filter sand.
TMS is coarser than play sand or pool filter sand, definitely, and expensive, for sure - but so PRETTY! ^.^ Its my favorite - I'm planning to use it in my 125, too!
There is a *slightly* cheaper 'generic' TMS that is sold at PetCo, I've read that it's the same, but have never used it myself. . .
