Yeah I suppose I will try a pool filter sand the last stuff a sea sand I purchased from HOT was and still is a nightmare. It was so fine and light the stuff would float in the water and not settle making it hazy in the tank. I had to shovel out and dispose of the original substrate. I sucked as much of the remaining sand in the bare bottom of the tank as best I could there was still a fine layer of it on the bottom of the tank I just couldn't get out. I put coral gravel and a new argonite mix of crushed and broken shell in on top of the white coral rocks and have had little issue since. The sand does still, even in the miniscule amount that was left in the bottom of the tank, does, at times, get stirred up and I have to take the filter off and rinse all the sand out of the bottom of the filter as this stuff will literally work its way through the course sponge of a larger filter and right back into the water.
Needless to say sand scares the crap out of me at this point but I am planning on trying a pool filter sand or an argonite sand which is good and coarse.

Here's my African Cichlid tank. I'm currently working on a DIY Foam and Concrete background...hopefully this high humidity weather will help strengthen the concrete :/
