adding sand on top of your CC won't really accomplish what you're hoping for. The smaller sand particles will eventually just settle down to the bottom of the tank leaving the CC at the top. The copepods and macrolife live near the top of your tank bed and the bacterias live near the bottom. Check out our Articles Section for an article on how to change out your substrate.
