Bubbles are normal in a new tank due to the water and the plumbing. It will take about 14 days for those to slime over so the water flows more smoothly and bubble free.

It does not look cloudy to me.

Your thread isn't a chat room, and is only as interesting as the topics involved. One method that might work better for you is to do some serious research on something you plan to do, explain what you learned and why you are about to do things a certain way. And of course ask for feedback to make sure you are on the right track.

ok yea the tank just looked cloudy for some reason must of been my eyes what do u guys think of how i am doing so far. As soon as a get my rock and light i would like to add clowns after the 5-6 weeks for test fish from there. Also i have a 37 and if i add the sailfin in the beginning do u think that he will be a problem to any other fish that i put in there

Well I have a foxface and yellow tang and they seem to be best buds and get along real well. I like foxfaces they are somewhat shy at first but befor you know It they will be eating right out of your hand. Very hardy fish and love to eat well at least mine loves to eat. Sorry what was the tang you have now?

RT6 -
Some advice on keeping this thread alive and imteresting.

How about if you try to focus on one thing at a time and get it completed. You seem to be jumping from one thing to the next and its a jumbled mess we can't stay focused on. You ask for help with salt and then reply about fish. I think you will find that if you focus on a task, we can provide helpful, interesting responses that can move this thread forward. Once it moves forward and we see progress, we want to help even more.
It's hard for us to get excited about putting livestock into a tank with an SG so low. And your only response is typically, "lol, have to bring it up"

So, how about you list all of the things that still need to be done before adding livestock, and we can agree to pick one and complete that task, then pick the next etc..

Just my 0.02, but you did ask (in the other thread)

The more pics the better, that way people can understand and get a visual at the same time. Allways eaiser and people can give some really good tips and things to look out for. Hey when It comes to books I look for more pics than words lol.

so when are you going to raise your SG? you only need to raise it what, .002 er something? dump some salt in the tank and be on with it! it shouldnt take that long!
hows your plumbing working out? are you getting the desired flow through your sump and fuge? are you having any problems with noisy overflows or pumps? maybe you have a micro bubble problem to talk about?
lets not talk about fish. your nowhere close to that yet. lets talk about how well your plumbing is doing. is there anything about your plumbng that should be adressed before you move on to the next step? if there is something not operating correctly, you should deal with it before you get too far along. its important that everything is working properly so that you can avoid any headachs later. but, if everthing is up to par in that department, then lets talk about putting sand and rock into the tank.

Your posts are very similar to a diary I kept when I was a kid.

Jan 1, 1976:

Dear Diary,

Today I did all kinds of cool things because there's no school today! YES! I skateboarded for a while, tossed the football around, played some video games until my dad took over the tv. Dinner was hamburgers and fries. Yum.

Nite, dear diary.


Jan 2, 1976:

Dear Diary,

While skateboarding down a steep hill today, I skinned my knee. That hurt. My dad made me read a book, but that's okay. I ate some pudding.

Nite.

Jan 3, 1976:

Dear Diary,

I had to pick some toys out to give to Goodwill. My dad said I have too many. I guess now I have room for some new ones.

Nite.

Jan 4, 1976:

Dear Diary,

I went to school today, did some homework, played the piano, time for bed.

Nite.

Jan 5, 1976:

Went to school, homework, piano, bed.

Jan 6, 1976:

School, homework, piano, bed.

Jan 7, 1976:

Had to do my stupid book report today. Never got to go out and play like all my friends did. Grrrr.

Jan 9, 1976:

School, homework, piano, bed.

Jan 10, 1976:

Same as above.

Jan 11, 1976:

" " ".

Jan 18, 1976:

Same old thing.

Mar 13, 1976:

Same stuff as usual.
....

And it wasn't long after that that I decided diaries were not for me.

Okay, so now that we've gotten a full sentence out of you again, you might just try cleaning the glass to see if the 'cloudy' water is just a white film due to precipitation.

I may start answering with exactly as many words as you use.

MarC - that diary post was awesome! I leave it to you to express what I'm thinking.

RT6 - If you still have the hippo tang, I'm guessing you plan on putting him in the 90, right? If not, maybe you could find a local reefer to adopt him and that will be one less thing to worry about while you're setting up this tank. Also, you wouldn't have to worry about compatibility issues and could get another different (suitable) tang if you chose to.

i am definitely adding the sailfin to my tank and i do not know about the hippo probably not because of its condition. I am not worried about the other tank right know i am really focused on this tank. Melev i just tried cleaning the whole class and it still looks cloudy maybe its from the salt i will see what it looks like in the morning
