Substrate Change

Is it common to be especially cloudy after a substrate change? Even 4 days later? I rinsed all of the new gravel and put it in on Saturday morning. It was quite cloudy at first and has cleared up, but it's not crystal clear like it had been. Just keep waiting?[/b]

Yes, it is perfectly normal. It may last a couple of weeks or more. Depends upon the amount of gravel, the size of the tank and the filtration.
