If it's for a shrimp tank, I see potential for shrimp to get buried by the falling sand, or even sucked into the intake.

Great concept, could go in a jungle style tank with some rainbows in there maybe?

It is not sand per se, iirc it is using filter floss being pulled apart and held down to look like a waterfall...

I've heard of people making them with under gravel filters modified for this use. They cut a hole into the undergravel part where the sand is dropping and the bubbles created by an airstone make an air-lift pump that sucks up water and sand.

They are an interesting thing, I'm not a big fan of them myself unless they really fit the scape of the tank though
