This is a discussion on My first saltwater tank within the Saltwater Fish forums, part of the Saltwater Fish and Coral Reef Tanks category; --> That's just weird. Shouldn't still be smokey. Is the sand getting blown around?...

A bit. It's pretty much covering my live rock.

Get yourself a turkey baster (a new one, you'll use it for quite a few things) and lightly blow the sand off your LR. SHould start to see some critters of some sort once you get theat water clear. You could through a filter in the back for a bit and it might speed up the process some, just dont forgte it in there.

Thanks for the turkey baster idea.

You know I did use a filter when I cycled my 50g but i feel that maybe it could have set me back bacteria wise.

That's why you only wanna leave it in there a few hours just to clear the tank up. Then pull it and put in whatever it is you're going to use. I ran a filter on my 20 for the first 45 days or so with no issues then switched to a pura filter and chemi pure elite. Get some pics up when it clears a bit.

There's a bit more rock than the pic shows. This is from the side of my tank next to my pillow. I'll be adding more pics of this tank in a day or two.
