It also may depend on the sand you buy. I garauntee that the sand I have would have no chance of making it in the tank with 0 sandstorm.

why would you stir the sand? as soon as the bacteria starts to grow it will help out with any sand storm.

ryguy in a new set up I bet if you covered the sand bed with a plastic bag and placed a bowl on top and then added all water in the tank by pouring into the bowl first you would have near 0 sand storm. I have done this in several tanks using south down sand and had clear water when done.
