Oh well, I don't think I'll risk it. I'm going to do a test with some construction sand now.

Just an update. In the end, I went with layers of Onyx Sand, Turface MVP, Flourite. (with some exposed sand areas)
So far the pH is .2 higher, and the kH and GH are unchanged, vs. Flourite-only.

The construction sand I found was alkaline, so I saw no reason to use it other than cost.
