I've being considering putting sand in a few of my tanks, I've read some fucked up stories of sand killing filters - I find that hard to believe unless you stick the intake right down in the sand.

The biggest problem is if you have a fish that will kick the sand up into your filter, otherwise its cool

I use 40 pounds in my 55. You may not need the whole 40 pounds. Not a bitch to clean at all. It's just a bitch on powerheads. I no longer use powerheads on sand tanks.
