And remember I want a tan color.
I would buy some play sand. The sand I bought was very tan and it was play sand. I always thought pool filter sand was a whiter color. Anyways I doubt it will change color very much after washing it. I'm not sure if crystaline silica is bad or not. =( I remember seeing/reading it can cause cancer if inhaled so idk. I know that play sand is safe for kids so it should be safe for fish.
