I like it, but maybe try and separate the 2 islands a little more and try that?

You dony reallu want to swoosh it. Best way is probably a pvc pipe or equal and maybe a funnel so you can pour the sand in straight to the bottom without creating a sand storm. It will take a day or so for the water to clear and for it to all settle. In your case with nothing in the tank but water you could pour it in and it will settle on its own. Does the tank have water in it yet?

No water yet. I plan on adding the sand first and then the water.

I find it easier to put the water in then add with a piece of PVC pipe and a funnel. You can get it exactly where you want it and it clears up in a few hours
