my sand bed is about 1in deep and I want to add more sand to 2in deep for future nassarius snails and future goby. Do i need to stir in new sand with the existing sand or can i just put it on top? I planned on adding a section every few days or so. The sand has a little cyano on it also.

Nah. I asked someone earlier about how they liked the home made and it worked well for them. I will make one soon I think too. Gotta get a good bottle.
Just cut bottom off bottle, drill cap to fit the tubing, seal the tubing in somehow. I may use fitting so I can slip in and out. Not sure. I just look for something laying around to use.
Experiment. That way by the time you are done, you could have bought one for even less. :D
