Question How deep should DSB be and what size sand grains?

I am planning a DSB in a 30 gallon sump for my 55 Gallon tank. How deep should the sand bed be, and what size sand grains would be optimal? Small like sugar grains or should it be a coarser grade?

Small grains. 6" minimum

Trust me my friend, the names are not important at all. I've own hundreds of different zoas and palys and don't know the name of a single one. In my opinion, they are a waste of valuable time.

you want 4-6 inches and sugar grain sized. Carib sea aragamax works very good...
