Sand bed? How deep is too deep?

I was looking at getting a Nanocube 24 and I work at Petsmart and we have live sand in 5lb and 40lb and 40lb is obviously a better buy is there such a thing as too deep?

In terms of filtration and bacteria growth in the sandbed, there is a point where it isn't productive anymore. Some people like using deep sandbeds in their tanks, at about 3-5 inches deep, and love them. But, that is a personal preference and if disturbed could lead to CO2 release from what people claim.
