I was looking through sands online to put in my aquarium when I cam across Quikrete All Purpose Sand, I looked up if this sand was safe for aquariums and most things said yes but im still on the suspicous side.

Does anyone know if this is ok to use in a tank ?

Yup! I use it in three of my tanks and it's great. Looks much more natural than aquarium specific or pool filter sand. I have found that it dropped my pH, so be aware if that could be an issue.

Sure is. I use it in all of my tanks and it's awesome! It does require a lot of rinsing but you can't beat that price. I got a 25kg for $8.20 at Home Depot. My LFS was asking $45 for a 15kg bag.

I agree about the rinsing, but it's much nicer looking than mostly-beige play sand.
