No worries! That's what were here forPurchased tank with live rock and life sand. Added salt water from LFS added pump heater skimmer and filters. Then added half of a bottle of what I think I remember as bacteria. After a week I checked levels and since they checked out ok I added the other half of th bottle. Week later I purchased 3 fish. My filtration system consists of 3 filter boxes that came with the aquatop nano all in one. It was recomend that I not use the carbon box and instead replace it with bio media and put some chatemorphia on top of that. On the overflow side of th tank I have a bag full of some stuff that came in a plastic bottle that was recommended that I put on top of the long black sponge. Please forgive me as I am new and do not know the names of everything as of yet.
If you added bacteria without a food source the tank may not have cycled completely. I think what I would do at this time is to let the tank run and see if it clears up. But keep an eye on levels so you dont get an ammonia or nitrate spike.
