that one is #25, a few of the other ones i have read on are #20. i forget which size is bigger.
Yeah I know it says pool filter sand, I just wasnt sure if pool filter sand and silica sand are the same thing. Pardon my lack of knowledge lol

It says the sand is 0.55-0.65mm sand, do you know which size you have?

And yes it will work for you.
Does the size of the sand matter? Do you think 0.55-0.65mm sand is fine enough?
