if you're looking to do a planted tank, you can go with eco-complete which has a sand like texture. you can buy inert sand for about $4 for a 5lb bag if you know where to look but a 20lb bag only cost about $20 so its not too much more expensive pound for pound. i've grown swords in my tank with eco complete without using any ferts at all, only diy co2 and with less than 2wpg.
you'll like the eco alot better than the inert sand, trust me.
