small sized gravel?

There's this small sized gravel I see in some tanks that I really like and would love to get my hands on. The problem is I don't know what type of substrate it is. Maybe it's a coarse sand? I've seen this kind in a few tanks, and I love how it looks - smaller than regular sized gravel, while not looking as "weightless" as sand. Here's an example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SdUjq_z4F1o

Anyone use something similar to this?

Edit: Is it builders' sand?

I love ADA Forest sand if you're looking for more natural looking sand but it's basically fancy gravel.
