Sand in the tank.

I added my live sand a few days ago and waited out the storm. When it all finally settled, I turned the pump back on and storm number 2 kicked up. Well that finally filtered out, but I still have several particles moving around in the water, and a bunch of sand floating on the top of the water that I can't seem to filter out. Any suggestions?

Did you use some filter floss in the tank? They are great for removing large particles. I used to tied some floss on the intake of my powerheads and the storm just clear up in an hour's time.

 

For those floating sand, well... I usually stir the water surface and the sand will start dropping down. Either that or you can net them out.

sand will fall after the air attached to it is displaced. you could try aiming the water flow up a little to stir things at the top a little better.
