Segue: I found an amazing deal of a 28gallon Bow-front WITH stand for 50 bux. GO CRAIGSLIST. Not only that, the lady had over $100 of fish chemicals and fish food. she threw in as well. WOAH. There was at least another $50 worth of ornaments that she threw in.
So, enough with the bragging, I made a mistake.. (drat).
I forgot to rinse the kitty litter and play sand before putting it into the tank. I do this all the time, I get really excited about things and I skip steps. Its my nature, and I always do it.
Will this eventually settle on its own? My brother-in-law suggested I swirl the bottom up as much as I can (effectively rinsing it) and then draining it, and starting again.
I'm not really into this idea, but if it is the best Idea, I will do it.
I'd just like to know if unrinsed playsand and kitty litter will settle on its own. Right now its cloudy.
