    Do you have a reason for wanting to switch to something? All filters keep the water clear so if you are having trouble with cloudy water it's probably a chemical issue. In my opinion I like sand filters the best as they are the easiest to clean.

    Unless there's a mechanical problem with the sand filter I wouldn't recommend changing it. As Kevin said, it's usually a blalnce issue if you're having water problems.

    If you're just wanting to change it anyway then I'd suggest a large DE filter. It'll filter finer but most people can't tell unless you're looking at the floaters in front of a light.
