I would hook up a the filtration. It will help clear the sand and keep the water moving. You should cycle though with all your doo dads hooked up so the media in them can get bacteria as well.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

The tank looks good! It looks like you got some nice pieces from Reef Cleaners!

I agree with Carey - add everything now. I used that sand on one of my tanks and it looked like a dust storm in there for two days with the filtration running

Ok installed the 405 added the rock. I just put the rock in so I would have the right amount of water. I will stack it when the water clears up and than I will post photos.

So after about 12 hours the tank is clearing up nicely. It was much easier to aquascape with rock outside of the tank. I am not liking what I put together at all.
