i set up a 55 the end of dec with a DSB
. I also have a wet/dry which i started running a couple days after i added my sand.
i also added a couple shrimp from the food store to start the cycle. I left my Powerheads off for the first week. I did clean my filter pad out where my water comes down into my wet/dry. I also got a filter carttridge for one of my powerheads. I just added LR
this week, was, ez to make a sand storm but I have noticed that it clears up faster and faster as time goes on. I am pretty new to salt water, and i am learning patience. I mixed all my salt right from the beginning, actually filled the tank with my salt water mix then added my sand, I would recommend getting ur salinity up to normal, being that you added part of it, should see what others have to say. I have heard that some critters can kick up a good sand storm, I haven't gotten to the point for figuring out what I am putting in but that is a consideration too. That's my next step as I cycle through with LR
in the tank.
I also plan on losing the bioballs in my wet/dry and replacing it with LR
rumble as time goes on.
Hope this helps some
