It's been pumping for 3 days.  All cloudyness was gone Saturday morning.  Everything looks good.  I did move the live rock to rearrange it with the tank clear during they process.  

I think this is something normal but the sudden change seems a bit strange at least to me.

this is the tank for early in the morning.

I need to work on taking pictures, they all end up very blue.

Welcome, I to set up an E-170 about 9 months ago.  I started with dry rock and the cycle took about 5 weeks before i could add any livestock.  During the cycle my rock had some white sediment on the surface, was able to blow it off with a turkey baster.  All types of weird stuff is going to happen during the cycle, just be patient and dont rush anything.

After realizing my filter bag was clogged in the sump.  Doh! My little tank is looking better.  So day 3.5 with the tank and I have some nice growth of brown algae.  Looking forward to the ammonia to go down so I can get some cleaners in there.

Welcome to the forum. I will give you some of the good advice I was given here a few weeks ago.  Consider moving your rock away from the glass.  Its a bugger to clean the glass when its so close.

Looking forward to seeing your tank grow.

I second this. I made this mistake and it;s a nightmare to clean the glass.

When you're ready I'd be happy to give you some free starter frags! I'm located in the forest grove area, and I usually always have a few kinds of coral and anenomes. There are so many great people here to help you with any problems that pop up.

Thank you all for the advice. Taylor I may hit you up on that offer.  I may have a business trip next to the Far East. 

The wife and I rearranged the rocks today and made a couple more additions of color.  I am still deciding on the lower profile look of them. The chromis seem to like it better like this.
