I learned the hard way. I'm going to use something larger for the other tank. Are you familiar with the Carib sea reef select? I don't want crushed coral, but something in between that and this baby powder.

I would also go to as minimal flow as possible- none would be best. Maybe just leave the overflow and return running. Do you have a filter sock? Could be helpfull. If you can adjust your return slow, alot of the dust in the water should settle in the bottom of your sump, instead of your fish tank.
Sounds good Chris. I reduced the flow by half on the controller and moved all PH's up near the top. I don't have a canister filter, but I do have filter socks. Good idea and thanks.
