The Fiberglas type will work, avoid any metal screening. I am an old timer in that in my 300 gallon reef (20 years old) I have 2" of "live" coral sand. This has worked out well for me, but hasn't for others. In an attempt to model what I saw diving on reefs, I liked the sand and associated sand dwellers. I have to clean it about once a year and turn it over (what the critters don't do). I do think it helps with buffering and my reef population seems to enjoy having it.
