I think when it comes down to it, sand is sand and people get too caught up in all the technicalities. I have Tahitian Moon Sand in my planted 29 and my khulis and pleco are all doing great. The sand looks awesome as well.
I recommend it for sure.

Not all sand is sand suitable for all fish.There is marine sand,and sand that contains minerals best suited for fish that prefer hard alkaline water such as ciclhlids. Some sand contains mortar and or lime used in construction.
For most tropical freshwater species,PLAYSAND or POOL FILTER sand would be desireable.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

I was always told to stay away from silica sand in a habitat be it water or air.

Im content with my sand, it looks great, is easy to clean and the bottom dwellers LOVE it.

You're right, I worded that terribly. I'm aware of the different types of sand for different aquariums and fish. I meant as far as just plain old aquarium safe sand goes, sharpness shouldn't really be a big issue.
