I still haven't set it up as I'm waiting for the newer tank, but reading into it it looks like play-sand(used for sandboxes and such) are okay to use as substrate. I did some digging and my local Ace Hardware carrys Sakrete Play sand for 4.99 per 50 pound bag, it looks like a few people have successfully used this just fine, after washing it very thoroughly of course.
Seems like a nicer, cheaper, easier alternative to me than using rock and gravel you buy at the store for aquariums.
Then again, I'm still brand new to this, so who knows!
Hope you find something good you like and don't just go cheap though!
