with out the schematic diagram, it is very hard to
visualized your ideas and concept. assuming that what
you are saying jibes with what i am thinking, 70LPH
can push and stir your sand. then the bed filter must
have enough height to accommodate floating sand, otherwise,
it will just go with the flow of water going back to your tank.
