How? How does that not disrupt your sandbed? I have trouble with my two 295s stirring sand up lol

It's just a matter of proper placement is all.

I aim mine upwards a bit facing the front glass. Causes a nice chaotic flow and keeps my sandbed perfectly clean.

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

Oh okay it looks good does the flow need to specifically go to a certain point? Like to the overflow or something

Nope, I just tinker with my placement until I get nothing lingering on the sandbed without disturbing the sand. You pretty much just want constant flow in every nook and cranny of the tank. All tanks are of course different due to rockwork but just play with it til you find the sweet spot.
