newbie needs help
Hi all first let me say thanks in advance for any ,and all help.
I picked up a 24 gallon nano cube reef tank last night.im over the top excited about my lattest obsession.
i also picked up about 18 pounds of live rock.now i followed the set-up to the letter,and when i put my sand in the tank became very cloudy with swerling sand.
i went by my local fish store,and the girl who helped me pick everything out said to shut of my pumps,and the sand will settle.i did this,and the tank became id say 75%clear,so i started my pumps in fear that i would hurt alot of money worth of live rock.
when the system fired up it kicked out another huge cloud of sand.
i shut it off ,and rinsed out both filters,but from here im just lost.
will the sand just settle?
do i turn of my pumps?
if not how long does it take to settle with pumps running?
ok ramble over.
thanks again for any help.
