What type of sand is ideal for the sandbox method.... I have a lot of flow in my display and any type of fine coarse sand will create a sand storm.... any thoughts ?Never got alerted here; sorry. (I see you edited in the tag after posting - that's why, fwiw)
You'd definitely need a sand box - a recipe for a short life without one.
It doesn't have to be sugar sand; something in the 2mm range is fine. You should still expect some sand to escape the container however, just from the fish burying. You will have to occasionally siphon out stay sand elsewhere in the tank.What type of sand is ideal for the sandbox method....

have you seen people do this with long term success or is this something that will stress to fish overtime to the point of death...Yes, that will work.
It just needs to be big enough for the fish to lay in, so in that case something 6" will do. Bear in mind that would need adjustment as the fish grows, though.
