35 gallon salt water hexagon tank cloudy

I set it up right I stirred up the sand cause I was trying to get it even all over. Then I noticed that the salt levels where high. I added the correct amount of salt. Went to the guy an he game me a power head to get the water to mix better and then it got much more cloudy.

You dont need that filter. You just need powerheads.

Is the sand new? was it used before? If you just set it up its normal for it to be cloudy.

I just pointed it to where most of the pressure was pointed upward from the sand but still enough downward to circulate that water without moving the sand but this is my first tank and I'm not sure if it is gonna work quite yet

I have the same tank. Point two power heads in the same direction to get a gyro effect. One is located near the top and the other about 1/3 from the bottom. Point them slightly down but not to the point that it disturbs the sand.
