I found some decent sand while looking to add more sand to my reef. This is the CaribSea Seafloor Grade Special version, which is decent imo.

Petsmart has 30% off for its "online only" items. For $24.49 and 40lb, you cant beat that. Shipping is free if you have $49 or more, so add a filler item or just order 3 bags if you need that many.

No. It will throw off your water chemistry.

Isn't this stuff inert? What will it do?

No, it's not inert. It will raise your carbonate hardness and PH. Actually, it can be used in freshwater tanks but may have undesirable results (unless you're keeping something that likes hard water with a high PH).

Yes you can it will buffer your ph a little but for certain freshwater fish it will be fine all African cichlids love crushed coral , I have it in all my tanks and no problems

Hey... uh, they're not crushing up reefs to get this stuff are they? That would be a real bummer. You think this'd be any good as tortoise substrate?

Nice catch, was going to need some more marine sand for spooling up the 75 from our current 55, thanks!

(btw, for those thinking of ordering sand who don't need 3 bags and are looking for actually USEFUL filler, they also have Marineland Bio-filter balls [petsmart.com] as online only, for an already decent $6.99, which becomes $4.89 after the discount, soundly beats Amazon's add-on pricing [amazon.com] for them!)
