Not tyring to hijack the thread... but I want to ask a question here if I can use thin river sand in my tank?

Are you looking to use it as a cap over dirt?

Actually I want to fill up about 3" of river sand 2mm to 4 mm particles and some sand . will that be suitable?

3" sounds a bit too thick for a sandy substrate. Try to stick to about a 1/2", and see how it goes. :) Make sure you rinse it well, before putting it into your tank.
