If I purchase pool filter sand instead of play sand will I still have to clean it the way you do with the play sand or can I put it directly into my aquarium?

All sand is going to be at least a bit dusty. Personally, I don't rinse any of it anymore and just let the dust settle.When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

I didn't rinse my pool filter sand, it settled fine in a day or two

Its not too hard to rinse the sand. I saw a video on youtube where they used a 2 littre bottle to add sand under the water, that cleaned the sand while adding it.
