We began the set up of our 54 gallon AGA corner unit yesterday. We put down 100 pounds of Tropical Play sand and filled the tank with Salt Water from our LFS
. We have the Eheim 2215 canister filter going. We hooked up the heater and the water is 80F. We have the Aqua C Remora Hang on Skimmer with Maxi Jet 1200 all set up but we are not using it yet. We have 2 additional Maxi Jet 1200 Power Heads, but have not turned them on yet.
Now for my questions:
The water is extremely cloudy from the addition of the water mixing with the sand. Will it help to turn on the skimmer or power heads? There is a white foam layer on the top of the water.
Second, we are scheduled to pick up our live rock tonight. If the water is just as cloudy as it is now, will it hurt the Live Rock to put it in our tank?
