Playsand makes a great substrate, just make sure you wash it REALLY well.

Playsand is fine. I have it as a substrate in my 75 gallon, and my four Yoyo Loach have no problems. They dig around in the sand to find blackworms that have hidden away and their little barbel looking things don't suffer at all. Agreed with the other person, just make sure you rinse it really well.

Agree. My Botia kubotai have a fine gravel which they burrow through, my Dwarf Loach and Banded Dwarf Loach have Quikrete Playsand, as do all my corys.
