Anyone else get this problem with Malawis ?

i've got a 300l tank with sump - but this cr@p all collects on the base and I have to clean it out pretty much every day. If I leave it, it binds to the sand and everything has to come out.

Should I get a wavemaker or powerhead or something for the bottom or use a different tank with a different filter ?

That's common with white sand. I changed mine for black gravel, still have some for sale if you interested look in sale section.
