What kind of sand?

I'm going to Home Depot or lowes later, to pick up the final things for my tank. I'm going to get some sand and prefer black if I can't find that I can do pool filter sand. Any suggestions on the sand? If you could leave the link to which sand.


Thanks

Look for black diamond blasting sand.

make sure if you like the black sand to get it, changing substrate is prolly the most frustrating thing to do. im kicking myself right now cos im using an inert sub so now i have a very limited choice in plants...even tho this is just a temp tank...i have a problem.
