Miracle Gro top soil capped with 3M Colorquartz T-Grade Black Sand

Is it fine to using miracle gro topsoil instead of miracle gro organic choice? Since it is topsoil and not potting mix, is it safe for aquarium use? Also, where can I find 3M colorquartz black sand?...

Thanks!

I pressure washed all three tanks. Most of the deposit are removed but the glass isn't as clean as I want it to be. I plan on picking up some cleaner later.
