I have Caribsea sand in 2 of my aquariums, a 30 gallon and a 180 gallon, with Fluvel Canisters ( 206, FX6's) and have no problems with clogging of filters. The 180 gallon has geophagus, biotodoma cupidos and wavarinii all eartheaters who sift sand most of the day. I also have corydoras- 15 of them. So, if concerned about suspended sand- Caribsea is the way to go. I have the Sunset Gold in the 30 gallon and Crystal River sand in the 180.
180 g. low tech w/ wild South American cichlids, corydoras eques, and African Congo riverine tetras.
60 g. low tech w/ F1 Alenquer pair /Stendker "Tefe" discus and wild Altum Angels
30 g. low tech w/ Wild Tucano tetras
30 g. low-tech African Biotope
