Nice one, it should clear up in no time. And when it does, you can always re-position the powerhead to the way you had it before

One thing to consider...you mentioned adding a CUC to the freshly cycled tank. What are you getting and what are they going to be cleaning? I'm guessing there is no algae yet and no fish means no detritus.

Well, right now it's just going to be 2 fighting conch and a skunk cleaner shrimp, mabye a few mexican turbos. I will be dropping algae wafers and dried sea weed in every other day. I am staring to notice dark spots in my rock that look a lot like the start of an algae bloom. This tank has been setup since the last week if may and instead of dropping 1 shrimp in, I dropped 3 in to cycle. my salt levels test at 1.24. So everything is good, fully cycled with plenty on BB.

The reason I'm getting them already is because I live two hours away from the nearest pet store and I'm not in town often. So probably the next time I'm up there, my tank will be absolutely covered in algae. It's not ideal but it works

The cleaner shrimp will have to be fed they arnt really a part of a cuc. I would actually hold of on the cleaner until you add more life to the tank and it stabilizes. Shrimp are quite sensitive and the cleaners are awsome so I would hate for you to run into problems. Start small, one or two snails and a hermit should do to start. This way you won't have to feed your "clean up crew" to much and it will allow you BB to build up to adding fish. I did this and it worked great for me. A lot of people add way to big of a cuc and in the end most of them die. Start small and add only as needed. After all they poop too.
