I have a 55 high that currently has sand...however the goldfish keep stirring the sand up and making the water cloudy....I’m at the point of having to replace the filter impeller because sand has torn it up...I’ve tried all the fixes and just want to fix it permanently

Can I put gravel in on top of the sand or do I need to remove sand then add gravel... I don’t have anywhere to put the fish so that the tank can recycle…Or is their another option ...intake is as high as it can go

Have you tried a pre-filter sponge? It could keep out some sand, if not all.
