50% water changes on all the tanks and a major re-scape on the 55 Gal Mbuna!

I think I'm finally loving it!

Totally cleaned my 55 African tank all the way down to removing my sand bed. I was a little worried that it was going to cycle again . But so far it is perfectly clear and all my levels were great. My fish are super happy ...not even a little stressed. It was the first time they have been moved out of the tank since I started it.... Now I just got to keep my eyes on my nitrates and ammonia...so far..perfect

Removed my egg crate that I was growing corals on. I just got tired of have to clean around it and hair algae was a pain to get off of it. Topped off the tank and that's about it for today. Time to glue some frags to rock work or find a home for them on the sand bed!

Ignore how cloudy my tank is. I was blowing off rocks.

This might sound stupid but my first go with actual sand, does it ever completely settle, my tank still seems a tad bit cloudy after 3 weeks.

It can be a pain in the butt sometimes. Just cut down on as much flow as possible and then be patient. I've had this tank setup for over a year and a half now so I don't remember how long mine took to settle.

When I first did mine it took about 3 weeks to get perfect but exactly slow your flow

Ok I dimmed down the bubbles yesterday and pointed my return up and that has helped.
