She's outdoor so something is bound to do a little munching on her. As long as its not a daily thing she will be alright

Looking good!
I didn't realize you were doing it outdoors. Being an outdoor auto many say it isn't needed to top them because of the sun penetration but....
If you are still wanting to do so just do it when the time is right. I will say that all 6 of my auto's are LST'ed but only the 4 that got topped are very noticeably bigger plants all the way around. It looks to me like you are on the 3rd node now? I think I would do it unless you don't get the 4th node in good enough to top by day 15 or 16. Once you get much past day 15-16 the autos won't have the needed time to keep vegging to make it really beneficial.

As far as using the sand I'm not sure. The easiest way to get rid of them gnats naturally and fast is to let the top inch of soil dry out good. They will leave for sure. Diatomaceous earth is an organic insect killer made of fossilized shells. It is sharp on the microscopic level and works by puncturing the exoskeleton of insects (draining them of their body fluids), but poses no harm to humans or pets and can even be eaten. You can put a layer of that down on the soil.
