Blowing Sand

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! I have a 6 week old Biocube 16G with the stock pump and a Jebao OW-10 Wavemaker. We have a 20-lb bag of the fine Fiji pink sand. No matter where I have positioned the powerhead the sand blows all over the rocks and coral. It creates drifts right now where there are low sand areas, and very high sand areas. I’m not sure how to position the powerhead to keep the sand from

drifting and blowing everywhere.

Imo the jeabo is too low I would put it up towards the top and aim it slightly down. Also I would aim the return nozzle up at the surface and towards the overflow to get better surface agitation for gas exchange and better skimming.. good luck happy reefing
