What to use to stick sand down?

What to use to stick sand down?

Okay i know that sounds a stupid question. But i will be moving soon and have the chance to get rid of my sand from the tank. I will do this because my tank will be/is sps dominated and i want to increase the flow in the tank, as its around 40 x turnover at the moment, and ive just got two more streams and this is what the flows like at the surface at the moment:
Showing the wave that is created:

Two top down views of it:



and if i increase the flow anymore i get loads of sand flying around the tank

I could go barbottom but i dont know if i could hack that???
but i was wondering if there was a way i could stick the sand down onto the glass?

Andrew

I don't think you can "stick" the sand down, I would go with a bare bottom, and maybe use the starboard (plastic cutting board material) on the bottom to give an illusion of substrate. You have so much flow in that tank, I don't see any way around it.

yeah i think it will be bare bottom as this will be cleaner as well

i did have a think of useing silicon and then putting a layer of sand over this, but when the silicon cures it will be a awful colour, barebottom it is then
