    Basically, I have just recently set-up a 55g. tank. I bought LS from a LFS and was told to put it directly into the bed of my tank and to put a plate on top of the wet sand. I would then be able to pour my saltwater into the tank with minimal cloudiness. It has been just under 72 hours since I...

    My tank has been set up for 2 months now. And the first month it wasnt wasnt too bad, but now the water is very cloudy. Could this be because i have a yellow headed sleeper goby? It looks just to have debri floating around. Does a floss filter or sock filter work better? Does a protein skimmer...

    My tank has been set up for about a month, maybe a month and a half. Added live rock around 3 weeks ago, and the cloudiness still has not faded.

    I read in a thread here about the infamous cloudy water when adding sand or live sand for initial setup. One person commented about adding liverock to help get rid of it, otherwise you will be waiting about 10-12 days for it to clear. Im here to tell ya, after two days of fog..... I added...

    Hello, I'm a little distraught about my aquariums tank water. My mom and I just set up a 29 gallon tank last night at around 11pm. We bought two 20lb bags of bio-active live sand (it was suggested to us) and were told not to rinse it before putting it in the tank because that would kill the...

    I just set up a new tank, and have been waiting for about 3 days for my sand to settle. I have 4 hydors running, and even added a few large pieces of LR. it is still not coming close to settling. I can't even see an outline of the LR. I just added a couple powerheads with some meshing to...

    I've got a 30 gal hospital tank treated with Cupramine and it only has 5 small clowns. Last night I did a water change of 10 gal and this morning the water was so cloudy I couldn't see through to the back of the tank. The cloudiness looks like when salt is first dissolved in a bucket, but the...
