Yeah, so my tank is still just as cloudy as it was last night. That arginite sand will not clear. Hmm

Edit: also found my xP3 with a shattered magnet. It was running but only for a minute an hour after I added the sand. Good thing I bought it a few weeks ago and it is covered under return policy.

Making the executive decision to drain it and start over again. This cloud isn't normal, not like a normal cloudiness.

It can sometimes take days for the sandstorm to clear up, just have a bit more patience.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Alright, back on track, cycling, looking good, have detectable traces of ammonia.

Have to wait on my new xP3 filter, still have one cycling! Went to the lfs today and found the antenna lion fish I want. They said they get them in pretty regularly. excited!
