110 gal tanks setup

ok i have my gravity right and tank is 3/4 way full

i ran a 110 gal over flow filter over night with nothing in it just to mix the water up more.
and a 70 gal canister fliter.

its been about 24 hrs and the tank is a little cloudy still

oo almost forgot i used 100 pounds of crushed coral almost like a sand.

i just put the media in the 110 over flow fliter.

i have a pro 50 power head submerged for a current pushing the water from the overflow side of the tank to the canister side

i have over flow on the far left or and the cansiter intake in the far right corner with the return i am using the spay tubes and i have it placed from middle tank to the left so that return water will mix with that side of the tank and would go tho the over flow filter next.

i havent done any tests yet but the gravity so far.

i also used the nitrafying bacteria on the crushed coral.

i know i need a skimmer still.

i also have 48 in 50/50 coral light and a blue coral light.

what else do i need to get and when should the cloudiness go away its not real bad i can see tho the tank just a little foggy

I would suggest putting Live Sand in the tank instead of Crushed Coral. CC makes it hard for burrowing fish and inverts to move around.
