Another way is to use a tube, like a section of PVC pipe to guide the sand to where you want it. Pouring it through the tube a little at a time.

Stop at any point the water is getting cloudy, and add more after it clears.
Thank you very much for the advice. I really appreciate it

That tank really tied the room together
