I've carried sand over from a 75 gallon (80+ pounds) to a 150 after it being in there for over an year, added 80 more pounds of wet live sand and never had a problem, acutely my nitrates went down?

Super fine looks really nice tho, I mixed it. Super fine is the best for holding on to BB, but like you said, what a sand storm, welcome to Sahara
