I have to ask....what is the deal with people adding extra letters all over the place?
I have noticed that a few have been doing this alot of late.
Is this supposed to be cool, spiffy, whatever?
I can't help but think that good information that might show up in a search, will get lost as the key words won't get picked up.

cover the sand with large garbage bags and place a bowl on the bags, fill the tank by poring the water into the bowl. After awhile the bags will start to float, just leave them till the tank is full then remove slowly.
You will have very little if any sand storm. I have used this method several times and it works well.

I like that information right Thurrrrrrrr <---LOL just messing with Hara.

I am setting up a 2nd SW tank for my parents and will be bagging the sand when I fill it up. I have also heard you can lay a pizza pan down on the sand and slowly pour the water on it till you get enough water in the sand won't stir.

put the sand in the tank and level it off then place a garbage bag on top of the sand and gently fill with water.... the ba will prevent the water your adding from stirring the sand. Clear tank when done.

Add the rock, turn the filters and powerheads OFF for a day.

It'll be foggy for awhile until all the dust particles settle down. Then add your LR to start your cycle.
