My sand has settled but the water is still like milky white cloudy. Is this bad or will it go away?

IF you have a spare HOB filter, hang it from the front of the tank with only the filter pads in it. This will help filter out the particulate matter. It may take a few days for the water to clear completely. Also, if you have a skimmer in operation, set it to wet skim for the first day or so.

Take pride in what you do, for it is a reflection of who you are.
