I had all ph
's off for 5 days. I read that ph
's (for some odd reason) should help the sand settle but it didn't seem right so I kept them off. After 5 days, I turned them on and it really didn't make much difference.
I threw in live sand last night and it actually cleared up a little bit over night.
I'm not really concerned too much about the cloud. Its a 110gallon tank and I didn't wash the sand. I threw in 60lbs of base rock, which were dry for who know's how long. I cleaned it but i'm sure there was still some dust on there. I also don't have any filtration going at all. If I get my live rock in there and it doesn't clear up - then, I'll be worried.
I'm more just concerned that I'm killing my ph
's with this dust cloud.
