Looks like you're on the right track so far. What kind of skimmer and lighting are you going to use? Is it going to be a reef or a FOWLR?

If your running on a tight buget then you dont want to go reef because you need expensive lighting and expensive corals that die easly if your a beginner

Don't worry, the water will clear with time. This is normal. Where did you get the LR?
