I have a 29 gallon biocube.I just set it up 5 days ago.I used sand and cannot get it to clear up.Any ideas on how to get the tank to clear up?I put a rock in there and u cannot even see the rock it is so cloudy.Thanks for any help.:-)

If you didnt rinse the sand a lot of times prior to putting it in your tank then it will cloud up and might take a week to settle.

But i did the same thing with my 14 gallon and it did not look like that.But the sand i used seems to fell fine in the cloudy tank.My 14 gallon tank the sand feels gritty.

Your right i did not rinse the sand its live sand.Do u have any idea what to do now.It has been 5 days.

put some live like 20lbs of live rock in there it helps the filtration alot better and its only the 5th day it will prob take a week to start clearing up and when u get live rock putt some in the filter with the bioballs better filtration.. do u like the biocube???

Yes i really like it.Now i want to turn our 55 gallon into saltwater now.I have a pair clowns and 2 spotted cardinals and i cannot add anymore fish because of the female clown. I put a shrimp in there and a firefish and she killed both of them.Do u have a clue in how i can add more fish? I have them in a 14 gallon till i can get the 29 cleared up then i am gonna switch them over.:-)
