the sand did not collapse. only the dirt. they just cant dig as well in sand. even though it is sand castle consisstany. i checked using a bottle cap. most of the sand stayed up and was a bit too moist. i could almost see the water.

Wait are you mixing the EE and sand together or are they separate in the tank like half and half?
