I just set up my tank for the pre-setup stage...checking for leaks etc...and it has been running for 3 days now and my water looks "dusty". I have a 72 gallon running on a Rena Filstar XP3. I have two filter pads, filter floss, and a micro filter currently in the canister....I can only imagine that it would get worse once I add everything else...is this common??? What can I do to get crystal clear water???
Nothing in the tank so far? Carbon for a couple days clears up a tank very quickly.
tank is empty except for my recently cured driftwood. I didnt get the carbon being that I'm going planted....
Replace the floss and maybe give some thought to replacing some of the other media with floss until you get the substrate "mist" out of the tank.
