Pete I used to do that I breed Africans and in all my tanks I have pool sand and I noticed no difference except the price

If you are going to use pool sand -- you don't want the bright white stuff IME.
I used to get mine at Namco pool company -- was a nice mix of brown shades.
cost less than $10 for 50lbs.
however it doesn't buffer.
and I always use just a thin layer of sand so it doesn't get anaerobic pockets.
