    Hi All
    have a quick question about my DSB. As you can see in the attached picture I have ALLOT of water about my DSB. Will this be ok? I heard one of the major problems is settlement. If i put a low flow powerhead in my DSB chamber will this sort out the problem?

    (ps cloudiness in the DT due to me just adding salt and waiting for it to settle)
