Sand problems!!

Hello, I have a 29 gallon tank. I have about 2 inch sand bed. I bought a water fowler. I'll have to check what kind but I keeps moving all the sand out of one corner. It this water fowler to big for my tank?

I'd move it lower and poit it up more. Surface aggitation is a good thing, it exchanges the oxegen and keeps the PH more stable. Win/Win.

I too am having the same issues. I just set up a biocube 29 and put a jebao wp10 in it. Playing with the settings a lot right now. One day it seems to be ok, I'll mess with a setting a the next morning I'll wake up and it will look like a sand storm had happened. Sand all over the rocks, 4" in one corner, 1/2" in another. Its all about placement and settings. Just keep at it and you'll get it figured out
