Finally Got water into my tank

After putting in a dsb of 4 inches in my 75 gal tank I finally got to the stage of adding water for the first time. Am I right in assuming that the water will clear of sand by itself after a couple of days so I can go on to the next step of testing my power heads and protein skimmer and heater for the first time?
I've learned alot from all you guys by reading the posts. Thanks for all the information.

Pete

Glad to see another MD'er on the board.

Yes, it will clear up in a few days. Patience is the key. 8)

I would let the sand settle completely before turning on powerheads and such, otherwise you will just create a sandstorm. There is also no need for the protein skimmer until your cycle is completed.

Thanks for the reassurance. It's taken me a little over a year to get to this point.
