Here is the way I did my netting, It's like Zer0 explained.
You can see where I cut to allow the pump cords through.

Your sand is so white.. how do you keep the surface that clean? Do you vacuum stuff up during water changes?

Hate those maggot sacks. I blame my dirty sand on my rocks though.. because when i first started cycling my tank with the live rock, they had an abundance of decaying junk and already dead animals.. so it just dirty up the sand soooo bad that i couldn't get anything out. But then, since i had those snails.. they were digging through the sand and they brought all of that junk back up from the depths of the sand lol. So now everything is uber dirty again. I'm about to go OCD on my sand too because things are starting to build up and turn grey in some corners of the tank.. so i don't think that means anthing good lol.

Get the scraper that comes with 3 different heads. turn your pumps off and use the rack to pull the stuff to the top of the tank and drop it in your hand.
