    Hi Guys,

    After shutting down my pred tank and moving everything over to my main DT ,

    i started to get a very "light / slight" cayno on the sand....could the move have caused this ?

    My params are all still in range...the only thing that really changed is the amount of LR I now have in the DT...might be flow ?

    Chances are, you have unleashed some trapped detritus from your transfered live rock in your DT, as long as your perams stay good, then it should die back.

    If it's slight then I wouldn't worry. Point your powerheads up so they break the waters surface to oxygenate the tank more and it will go a long way
