I'm in the first stages of starting a 29 gallon reef tank with a 20 gallon sump. My LR
is to arrive next week and I'm in the process of mixing SW
to cure the rock in. After mixing Reef Crystals in a Rubbermaid tub with a power head/venturi for aeration and a heater I find that the water is cloudy even after the second day.
Is this normal? I did rinse out the tub a number of times and believe it to bee clean.
Here are some parameters:
Water: Using RO
at this time)
Water params: out of the RO
unit Chlorine - 0, GH
- 0, KH
- 0, pH - 6.5
In the Tub the parameters are:
Temperature - 80 F
I'm starting to think it is an issue with the tub I used. The pump has been shut off over night to see if the lack of agitation would help the cloudiness settle out, no change this morning.
