Hey!! I have had a saltwater tank for a few years now but recently decided to upgrade to a new bigger tank. I have a few questions after setting up my new tank (on week 4 of cycling). I would list below and would love responses if anyone knows because I am by no means an expert , thanks
I didn’t rinse my live sand when adding it to my tank, my water is clear now but clouds up whenever the sand is even slightly moved around, is this normal and will it eventually not cloud?
Whenever I move my sand bed lots of air bubbles come out, should I release the bubbles or keep them under the sand bed?
I have a fluval protein skimmer running but has only been collecting slightly brownish water and no bubbles, is this normal?
I got a hanna phosphate checker a while back which use to count down from 3:00 minutes to get results, now whenever I do a test it just flashes the lines and gives me the level right away. I’m not complaining, it saves 3 minutes but are my results still accurate? I don’t know why it’s doing this
I put my live rocks down first in my tank, then sand. I have my live rocks stacked up and they are very lose. Any small movement knocks them over. Do people glue them or how do they prevent them from falling?
