Found this on a web site, and thought some of you might be interested:
"Sand - The most common types are Live Sand, Play Sand, or All-Purpose Sand. However, my favorite is Silica Sand (I use this in conjuction with Gravel and Laterite). Silica Sand is a moderately-fine Sand, but not so fine as to cause problems. Incidentally, I use Silica Sand in my Glass Stones. Be on the lookout for "clumping" when using Sand as a Substrate. Clumping causes "dead anarobic patches". Silica Sand does not clump."
