well it doesnt really matter what sand you use as long as it doesnt contain anything that might be harmfull for the scorp, but the sand your using sounds fine, but i whould still mix it with soil..

Congrats on your new scorp.
Make sure the soil is dry when you mix it , at least not wet. If you mist the enclosure from time to time, I think it will drink the droplets off the walls if it`s thirsty.

Mesobuthus species love water especially when in groups. Often found swimming as long as you give them a way out a little water bowl will be cool.
