36 Gallon Bow Front FOWLR

I set up a new fish only with live rock aquarium today! It's my first saltwater tank, but I have had experience with maintaimence with my teachers reef tank. I added the sand a few minutes ago and it's crazy cloudy. If you have any advice or questions I would love to hear it.Click image for larger version

I would've added the sand first, then placed a bowl of some sort on the sand bed, poured the water into the bowl to make the water less cloudy. It will be a little while till that clears up bit depends on what kind of filtration you have. What kind of filter do you have? Do you have a hob? Also do you have a powerhead in there?

That's exactly what I did. but I'm running a hob right now so we will see how long this takes. I didn't want to rinse it since it was live sand.

I'm waiting to see how strong of a power head I will need before I get one.

Ok I see. I see a lot of people have two powerheads on a 30 plus gal for good circulation.

Take your time and do a lot of research. Just be patient that's all. Get a lot of opinions before deciding on something. I do a lot of research on YouTube, Thats helped me a lot.
