I can't see any flow? Agitate the water. Airline or filter. It will be done by morning.

you may like the "KENT MARINE SALT" it's about the same price as IO
I swear by it now you should try it , I used to use IO REEF SALT always had issues salt not dissolving , low calcium levels , cloudy water , could never keep stable levels on ph

you can just don't use any filter media

power heads will help also lots of circulation

I had to paint the back and bottom of my quarantine tank again.

Suggestions: don't use spray paint, you will be left with unpainted sections no matter how much you apply

Suggestion #2: Don't use spray paint in below freezing temperatures, it will bubble up on you! Haha, good thing only my quarantine bottom and back.

Lol doesnt work well below freezing.
I used the Krylon fusion plasticoat paint on mine it worked great! Just an idea for you on future paint jobs on tanks. Not sure if color makes a differance in coverage or not mine is black.

Thanks for the suggestion. Is this roll on or spray? If spray, did you really get all the nooks and crannies and leave no "streaks" of no paint?

I use tropic Marin. Full flavour, I thought I'd have real salt creatures by now so all the correct coral trace elements, kent marine gets good rating in the UK too. I think it's possibly the No.1 brand over here.

@fishman yes my friend, fit something to stir up the water, fit it low in the tank, if it doesn't blow right across the bottom use an airline at the other end or another blower.
