how many fish? and what kinds? are they sensitive species? just trying to help ya out lol.
Hippo and naso tang, one clown
Keep a close eye on the params, that's a lot of fish quick, so you will probably see some spikes in ammonia and nitrite. Better have some prime on hand just in case. You're probably in for an algae battle as well.
Also you may want to start working on your plans for an upgrade .
Its a product that will lock up ammonia and nitrite before they get a chance to harm the fish, along with many handy uses. If you start to see the params rise you can use a little to help get through the spike. I keep it on hand just in case, it's kind of like duct tape for aquarists, it's got 1000 uses. lol.
Haha ok great. How long would u think before this gets cleaned up?
It depends on many factors, what kind of sand? How much acrylic in the system (pumps, dividers, skimmers, etc.) as well. Until there are no more silicates available you will have diatoms.
Crushed coral. 2 filters protein skim
I guess I will be the first to say, 2 weeks is too soon to add fish. Your tangs will have a high chance or mortality. The cycle is very stressful and tangs are susceptable to ich when stressed. 6 weeks is a pretty good time for fish IF the tank has fully cycled. what about live rock?
I would shorten your daylight time for a few days that should help.....
