Murky Water

So I recently filled up my tank, and the water has weird pieces floating around. I have nothing live in it yet. Just dead rock and dead sand. I was wondering, if I put my HOB filter, what could I put in it to take out all those pieces? Would it affect the salt levels?

 

Thanks

You answered your question right there in your first sentence... allow the filters 24-48hrs depending and the power and how good the system is... why are you using dead sand and rock?

Because I just started my tank and didn't get my live rock yet. :P

For the proper cycles, you should start with the live rock and sand, not only does the LR provide filtration, together the LS and LR help the cycle begin... plus if you were planning on doing LR and LS the water will need to be changed once you get it and replace the dead sand and rock
