| || | 55 to 90G tank transfer-Cloudy water still?
I didn't know where to post this in the other thread or here. I haven't aquascaped or added anything to disturb the sand in almost 3 days now..and my water is still cloudy. In fact, it seems a little cloudier today than yesterday. All my powerheads are pointing slightly upward, so I'm not sure what's disturbing the sand. Since this tank was bigger, I did add a little more sand to keep it a DSB, but i thought it would have all settled by now.
My nitrate's around 20, cal is 400 and alkalinity is 10. I'm still working on getting those up.
I'm also not sure if my skimmer is working properly. Today's the first day i emptied it and it had the bubbly gooey stuff in it. It usually has some sort of clay stuff in it..not sure if this is floating sand that catches in it or what. I don't know if I need my cup set up high or low.
Heres some pictures
