you just have to be patient. the sand will eventually get heavy from bacterial growth and not get blown around. it may take 3-4 months, but it will settle down. i ran my tank with minimal waterflow during the cycling to keep it down. after nearly a year the sand does not go anywhere. i run close to 2500gph through the tank. i am thinking of upping it to 4500 gph in the next year. i do not think i will have a problem with the sand blowing.

it just takes time, sorry.:(
