We used a mixture of some really fine live sand i bought off someone breaking down their tank, and we had some pretty coarse crushed coral.

It's day 3 of our 55 transfer and it has just now started settling.

The only thing i can think of would be to slowly cup by cup add the crushed coral to your sand bed maybe over the course of 2-3 days, a cup every few hours and pour it slow and gentle on top of your sand bed.

I want to add more crushed coral to mine too and i think that's probably what we will do.
