Thanks for your feedback. That is correct however having dived there many times I found that the deeper you went the darker the sand got.

So I guess we are both onto something.

Beautiful tank!
Hows the maintenance on a setup like this? Looks tricky to vacuum with lots of nooks and flow less areas for debris to build up.

Maintenence is very low. Weekly water changes and a vacuum every quarter year. Filter sheet cleaning every 12 months.
The aquarium has 3 Fluval sea wave pumps that come on for a 15 minutes every hour of daylight. If you can keep the debris in the water column your filters have a chance to action them.

Its all good bud. I found the thought of sending Sand around the world amusing.
