    Doubtful. Probably just play sand sold in huge bags at home depot type stores. Though if you are unsure, probably best not to risk it.

    A lot of ppl use play sand (sold for sand boxes) in their aquariums, but if it has been in your sand box, I wouldn't use it. No telling what it could have been tainted with.

    That will be fine. Sand box sand is probably thing sold as play sand. You could also look at pool filter sand also, I have used that before. Around the sand price as the play sand. Usually there are a few different sands at these stores, and almost without fail there are a few ripped bags with sand on the floor near them. Good way to see the color of the sand, some are more white or brown then others.
