It's finer and lighter than the pool filter sand, so it took more washing than the heavier sand, but it's also softer and smoother.
Cleaning is a breeze as opposed to having to dig down into the gravel to vacuum.

So what is the process for cleaning sand VS cleaning gravel?

Gravel - shove the tube through the gravel to the bottom of the tank.

Sand - lightly swirl the end of the tube about a half inch over the sand. With sand, the waste has a tendency to collect in certain areas making cleaning even easier.
