I'm in the process of setting my 92G corner bow, and am using turface for the substrate, planning on fairly heavy plantings. My LFS told me not to rinse it first and be very careful filling the tank, which I was, but now it seems like every time I try to adjust anything it clouds up. No fish in it yet, I've had the turface in for about 5 days. Was this good advice not to rinse it? Will the problem persist?
are plants in yet? there are those who rinse substrate to the point that a substantial amount of nutrients might be lost. It is my belief that once you set plants the less you mess with them the better. You could consider capping substrate with very fine gravel. Too large would lend itself to compaction of the substrate but a fine gravel could help by keeping fish from stirring things up. Course that depends on fish you keep. it,s not to late to rinse it . :D
The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
