    Wait till you get all pumps going mate , you do get used to sound though , my cheap led fitments I just turned them down just enough so fans don't turn on Big Thumbs Up I did the egg crate with last tank wasn't impressed think sand can't be turned over by snails if sand trapped in crate , I put 25 kg in my 350 and I've bout 1 to 2 inch coverage so you must be quite deep in your 250 , wait for the cloudy tank when adding salt , maybe clear in a few days same happened to mine

    cheers bud with regards to the egg crate its not like the loads of little squares its a rectangular platform with slots in and has six legs so still sand below the crate plus I'm hoping to only have the egg crate where the rock will be sitting so snails won't be able to turn it over here anyway thats my theory lol salt is in and its clearing already with the two vortices on full power lol but got a feeling this is going to stop here for a week or so now to have this feeling :012:

    Why have you got the pumps on ? No point really till you salt it. Even then I'd just use the return otherwise it will take forever to settle.

    Noise wise wait for the lights! Hahaha

    What's your thinking with the egg crate? Bad news IMO. Creates areas that just fester. There are other creatures / bacteria that work the sand. I always feel it will restrict the 'live' nature of the sand.
