First of all here it is:
We washed the sand until we could wash it no more....Probably a half hour or more on each bag.As you can see the tank is still cloudy.
To be expected I assume???How long will it need to settle?
It looked so bad we did'nt add the salt yet in case the water was going to have to be tossed (didn't want to waste the salt).
I've used pool filter sand in my FW
tanks and I washed it as well,but I got better results with intial clarity.
This tank is going to FO
...just some decorations and few small fish.I see that different SGs are recommended for different situations (FO
ect)...are target PHs different as well?What is the target SG
for a FO
Lastly I know the sand we used it to help keep the PH up in the tank...and that water for changes must be mixed at least a day before the water change occurs.Does the salt drive the PH up in the water change water?Is it artifically driven up?Or is there an effort made to match PHs at all?
Thanks as always,
