just read about the sand cloging up filters if they are to low..
is it ok to use 2 overflows with sand or should i just go with 2 FX5's instead of the 1 with the overflows?

What is the size of the tank, if you plan to get 2 x FX5?

To avoid the sand getting into the filter, do not keep the intake tube end down so near the sand surface. And use a good mechanical media in case sand gets in. It is important to protect the propeller and its housing from the sand.
