Please help sandstorm...

Somehow my powerhead had fallen off the side of the glass and created a sandstorm you can't see anything ... I had reattached the powerhead and turned it off for now to let the sand settle ... Will my fish be ok I see my 2 clowns swimming by glass but I have 5" hippo tang I have not seen.... Do you think fish will be ok and also what about my corals will they survive. Please fill me in thanks

You might want to turn off your power head(s) until it settles!

If you don't have any corals, go ahead and turn off your PHs for a bit. It'll take a bit for the sand to settle. The fish will be fine.
