I've used play sand and loved it. If washed well it is very clean, doesn't "dust up", and does well with plants. To clean it you only need a 5 gallon bucket, water hose, and a chair . It took me a couple hours to clean enough for a 55 gallon.

The only reason I switched out the PS to a dark substrate was for a change, but I would definitely use PS again.

I thought of blasting sand from TS but after purchasing and sifting through a couple bags I decided against it. I found some metal pieces as well as some sharp glass "needles".
