Did you remove the top from the salt shaker? I hear leaving it on can cause cloudiness.:p

Btw, i know the salt was mixed properly because.. i mixed it rofl. Everyone keeps freaking out about it when i tell them i mixed it in my main tank. The only reason i did it is because theres not a single soul in my tank.. its just water. I have both of my pumps close together and it creates a vortex and does alot better at mixing the water in my tank then i ever could in a bucket. Im not stupid, and i know that when i have my LR and inhabitants in my tank, i can not mix salt directly in the tank because salt is caustic to the living things. I already have a setup to pre-mix my salt and keep it airated and everything. Thanks for the concern though.

and yeah I removed the tawp.

Sorry did not catch that. I would just put one on each side of the tank that should take care of your Cloudiness.

Yeah i moved them back to their own corners. That vortex thing was only for when i need the salt to be mixed. But that wasnt the only method on mixing. I used a huge wooden spoon to mix my tank every 15 minutes for like 2hrs. Btw, the water is not UBER cloudy, its just a tad cloudy. I haz pics..

It's Good your Koralia will be enough for flow.... So it should keep it cool... I still would keep off your Filter and Skimmer it would affect your cycling process once your start your cycle.

Yep thats what i've been told so im going to shut that stuff off once i get the LR. Im doing the LR cycle since im getting uncured LR. Btw, just incase you didnt know, i have two koralias. idk you just said koralia shoul dbe good for flow, so i didnt know if you knew or not lol. Btw i was looking at your build thread and seriously, your 55 was amazing. completely amazing.

I also meant to ask you, were did you get the Armor of God zoas? Honestly i really want those corals. They are my favorite out of all the zoas.
