Hi Everyone. I set up my low tech low light no c20 36 bowfront yesterday. I set it up around 12 yesterday and its still extreamly cloudy. Is this normal? I thought they cleared up in a cpl of hrs? I cant see the backof the tank its so cloudy. Also I thought I had 2 40 watt bulbs but really all I have is 2 20 watt bulbs. Is this enough light for low light plants? Please let me know so I can go get new lights if I need to.
thanks

what substrate did you use? rinsed?

i set up a 90 gallon this weeked,used live sand, it was somewhat cloudy for less than a day. keep in mind the sand was moist so it wasnt as much of an issue. not sure this helps ya at all
