Cloudy Water

I am currently waiting for my cloudy water to disappear before i order my liverock. was wondering if i should leave the powerheads off, and the skimmer (have this on because i want to break it in so it isn't so loud...remora pro with mag 3, company says it take 7-10 days.) finally got the tank completely full today takes a long time with the r/o d/i unit....but that's fine. anyways about the cloudy water.

thanks to all who replay.

Leave the powerheads on. It will take a few days for the cloudiness to pass with them on and a few days with them off. So you might as well keep the water circulating. Running the skimmer is fine as well.

Agree...the skimmer may actually help remove some of the fine particles. Mine did.
