ok im sure there are a million threads about this and im sure its a simple fix but i really wana make sure im doing the right thing befor i go ahead and add my fish so here it is..... im new to breeding fish so far iv been working with mollies just to get a feal for what it takes to care for the fish and fry. iv had 3 female mollies and 1 male mollie in a 55g tank for some time and have had lots of fry whitch go into a smaller tank as im able to catch them. my problem is in my 55g tank i decided to use river rock (about 1 inch per stone) as my gravle and my fry hide deep within so its very hard to catch them with a net befor they get eaten or end up getting stuck in the rock. so as a solution iv decided to move my millies to a 30g tank with sand and haveing it well planted for the fry. anyways iv washed the sand whitch took forever whitch i knew was going to and after placeing it in the tank and slowly filling the tank with water useing a dish to pour on as not to stir up to much my tank has become a milky white cloudy tank. iv run the filter (whisper 40 power filter) for 2 days now with no change (and yes i changed the inlet to be higher so i dont suck sand). i also turned the filter off for a day to see if that would help. so here i am asking if anyone else has had this happen and what i should do (besides get rid of the sand lol). i was thinking maybe do a complete water change but hopeing i wont have to. please any sugestions will be helpfull.
