just set up

i just mix the salt in my tank of my 55 gallon. after a couple days theres still like some white stuff on the bottom im guessing thats salt. i pointed my power head down toward the bottom to see if that will help but seems like it just stays there. how could i get rid of this or can i just put sand in?

Is there a heater in the tank?

Did you follow the salt boxes instructions on what ratio to mix the salt?

What brand did you use?

is that enough? im plannin on having only live rock and live sand and a couple of fishes. so is it safe to just put the sand in on top of the white stuff on the bottom of the tank or how can i clean it?
