ADA Colorado Sand

I wasn't sure where to post this as it is about both substrate and parameters. I am planning Taiwan Bee tank but I would like to make it a Nature Aquarium style with a bit of Colorado sand in the front of a heavily scaped tank. The ADA website says that the Colorado Sand will not change parameters as it is a cosmetic sand product but I was wondering if anyone here has had any experience with it, I.e. will it raise GH nd TDS? It will be in a low pH and low GH environment and I have not been ablw to find any concrete answers.

I'm pretty sure it's inert, although even if it did affect chemistry it wouldn't be by very much
