Is doesn't really matter, but you do have to stick with it for a while. You can't just randomly switch from Petco Brand to Instant Ocean.

I use instant ocean reef crystals. I happen to like them. But everyone has a preference kinda like what you like on your hot dogs, mustard, ketchup or onions etc....None are wrong but all get the job done.

Instant ocean I can get anywhere, thankfully, and the 160 gal bucket is only $40.
Now... 50 lbs of sand should give me a 2" sand bed, but should I get an extra 20 lbs and make it 3"?
And since the 40b has no center brace, is rock work safe directly on the glass?

The sandbed doesnt really matter, but if you want a 3" sandbed go for it!

I am not so concerned with sand myself, the rock work idea is what concerns me...
