Provided the sand is cured you can add it directly to the tank.
Turn off all of your pumps. Get a large new clean pvc pipe and a new clean funnel. Stick one end of the pipe down to your sand and slowly pour sand into the funnel and down the pipe.


If it's not cured though(dry sand), you will have to do it slowly. Add about a cup of sand every couple days.
