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.
A moderator on a fish forum should be able to identify an oscar... Don't you think?

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.
