Hope this is enough to keep the tank from cycling again? Water is still a bit foggy even after rinsing the sand for an hour? I'll post Pic. tomorrow
My water was cloudy for about 2 days after I switched my 75G to sand. It shouldn't stay cloudy long if you washed it really well :)
As long as you kept some of the old aquarium water and filter media and the decoration (given you kept those wet instead of letting them dry) then you should be fine on the cycle.
