So, i brought some live sand from my LFS
and i asked the man there if i have to rinse the sand, and he told me no. So i didn't rinse it. I put the sand in, put a dish and slowly poured the water in.
But the tank is really cloudy and there is some foam up at the water line =/ I ran out of distilled water to make more.
will it settle? is this okay? sorry i am a freshwater person and this is my first time trying anything saltie.
Oh this is not a full salt water tank, this is a brackish 1.011 specific gravity tank. Its suspose to be a semi ecosphere for hawaiian volcano shrimps opae ulae. I have live sand, live rock and a few lava rocks in this bowl.
