    Maybe try some filter floss to trap the particles.

    Hi @TaahirS i will try that.
    @4age at the moment i will be running it without the sump, as there are no holes drilled and no over flow attached. i go a dolphin hang on skimmer attached to the tank for now, tommorow ill be going to namibia so thought it would be best to keep the tank cyclining so by the time i get back water is in top condition.

    Whats your suggestions

    the water will clear out over time. Filter socks would have helped to speed it up.

    Position your flow pumps so that it does not cause even more sand storms.
