I'll scrub the sand and just let the rock go. What is the best way to scrub the sand.

the only way i've heard to wash the sand is put some, not all of it, in a 5 gallon bucket and just run water into the bucket and wait till the water running over the edge is clear. thats the only way i've been told to wash sand maybe someone else has an option

The other option is using a pillowcase and doing small loads. I personally used the bucket and rinse til the sand runs clear. It takes a while but its worth it in the end.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

That is true I just wasn't sure due to everything being taken down when I brought it home

now that i think of it, i wonder if turning the sand into fluidized sand would clean it faster?? id think so due to the nature of fluidized sand...
