Take a deep breath and just let everything settle. It will clear up. Give it time. Have you decided how you're going to cycle your tank. If you use the table shrimp- put it in a panty hose so you can get it out, strait ammonia ? I used a product called dr Tim's one and only. Cycle my 180 g in a couple of days. But it's expensive. It worked great. But I didn't have the time to do it the right way which can take up to 6 weeks.

I used Dr Tims one and only also, bought on Amazon with the ammonia not a bad price. Mine took 8 days to cycle. I tried the shrimp method first and was getting no ammonia readings even with live rock.

Dr Tim's is good stuff, took 3 days an had some damsels in my tank. Amazon seems like the best place to get it. I paid 38.00 $ shipped for 120g treatment

I have been looking at some alternatives to dr tims like the ATM colony or the API startsmart but I'm not sure they work as good

I would just dose with pure ammonia from ace hardware (make sure no bubbles when you shake it) or do the raw shrimp method. I would use and false additives. IMO. Only because I never used them myself.
