Fine Glass

Is it possible to use very fine glass for the bed of a tropical fish tank? ?

My brother has given me some very fine, small glass, which he thinks is very similar to what they sell in pet shops. I'm not sure this would be suitable for a fish tank, just doesn't sound right to me? Any suggestions?

There are 2 issues.

1) Certainly a fish can mistake small items for food. My large goldfish spit out small pieces of gravel regularly and though it doesn’t harm them, smaller fish might have a big problem.

2) Glass is frequently colored using metal salts (different ones for different colors). Metals can leach out and be very harmful to fish. If you are not sure, avoid it. Paints/glazes can leach toxins also if they are not designed for aquaria.
