I have used pool filter sand in the past and honestly hated it. Due to the fine grain nature of this sand, I believe I will be putting a shoal of corydoras pygmaeus in the tank which will help the sand from being too comfortable in place. That being said, this is the sand that I am using for this tank and as long as this doesn't harm the organisms living within the tank I am alright with a little bit of mess.
Bump: Yep washed the sand under water for around half an hour till the water ran clear! Thanks for your help again.
