I think you should go with the sugar sized substrate. If you find that it blows too much or you are unhappy with it you can always put a thin larger granular sized sand on top. You will know fairly quickly if you do or do not care for it so it wouldn't have enough time to become live sand. I will tell you this though, wash it in a bucket outside with a hose first because it puts off a lot of dust! I then drained it and rinsed it twice with RO
water and added a little bit of amquel just to make sure there was no chlorine. I initially tried using all RO
but it took so much to rinse it to nearly clear.
