You can filter it through some Polly floss to rid it of the fine particles but the reef levels like calcium alkalinity a magnesium will have dropped due to it getting wet. There may be some more science behind it as to why you shouldn't use it though that I'm not aware of.. Ccapt is very knowledgeable on salts.
Hmmm idk if straining it will be possible... I could put a filter sock on the end of the hose... I should probably just toss it and start over huh? Sucks tho cuz I was reallllly looking forward to cleaning the sand tonight!

Just get a second container for the water and pump the water into it through your filtersock with some poly floss in it. I wouldn't waste it and there aren't many corals in this ta k so the reef levels shouldn't be a major issue.

Well I filtered the water 3 times. Once thru a sock, twice with sock & folded up filter pad. Didn't help went thru with a wc & semi vac'd the gravel. The tank is so hazy... And that makes me sad.

Btw MrC, I think my secret Santa list has certainly changed now haha...

You can always send me some new wants or just post them on here cause I bet they are reading your threads lol. Sorry bout the water though. What you couldn't get out will settle in about 24 hours. It's ok I've had a couple bad mixes. It only becomes a problem if it blankets the corals.

Well my phone AND Internet got shut off the same day and that's why I haven't been on lately but everything is turned back on and good so here we go....

Water cleared up from that bad mix and all Params been stable, everybody is happy & healthy and my mushrooms are growing SO big, soooooo I couldn't resist the urge to add something new... I know I should have waited! I got a Sea Urchin, Banded Coral Shrimp, Feather Duster & a Pulsating Xenia My Giant hermit is now enjoying my $12 feather duster.... Super sad face. I have done everything in my power to make him stop. Move him, move the duster etc. I feel like banishing him to the sump but that would be mean!!! What a jerk!
