Cloudy WaTeR

Whats up every1, I just started up a 50G saltwater setup. I used to own a 30G a few years ago and decided to get back into it. Question is about cloudy water. I have about 60lbs of coral, a RENA XP2 Filter, but the water is still cloudy after 3 days. Should I wait for it to clear up or take some action? Is there anything I can put into the tank to speed up the process? THX

It will clear in time just be patient. Cleaning the foam pads in the Filstar will also help. Once they get saturated with sediment, the flow will be greatly reduced and be less effective.
