Mine lasted about 6-8 hours, circulation and filtration are crucial in quick clearing

The amount of live rock you have and the fact that you use live sand definitely helped you there

If you have a piece of PVC pipe, you can put it into the sand. Gently pour sand in and over a period of time you can add large amounts.

Pipe. PVC pipe. Same stuff your plumber used to plumb your sink and toilet. Great stuff for saltwater plumbing as well.
