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
ok did my first tests
kh = 240
ph = 8.0-8.5
no2 = 0
no3 = 0
gravity 1.021 "i know its at the low end "
no fish yet
o forgot to mention that the canister has nothing in it just usieng it to move water
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.
