Waterfall?

Anyone successfully made an aquarium waterfall?


I'm looking for sand and was hoping you could give me guidance for what sand to get. I know the sand I have now is too thin, because it floats everywhere.

Use pool filter sand, the larger grains help it to fall straight down where it can be picked back up.

Its not the sand, its the air pressure. But larger sand will probably help if you don't have any control on the pressure from your pump.
