If you don't clean your sand properly, there is a risk that the water could be cloudy. If you rinse and clean your sand, it will never be an issue. All of my tanks have sand, take a look at "My Tanks".
thanks man nice tanks what kind of sand do you use?

I've used Play Sand, Beach Sand and lately Quikcrete All Purpose Sand. The Play Sand takes too long to clean, the Quikcrete being the choice I would use again.

I bought it at Home Depot, but you should find similar products at Lowes, etc..... You don't want super fine grain, slightly larger.
