29 gal. and playground sand.
Yesterday I set up 29 gal. at work and for the first time ever decided to use sand. Thought about PLAYSAND but only had three colors to choose from Blue, Green, and hot Pink. Decided to use playground sand.
To get approx an inch and one half depth only took about 15 pounds which I washed in 5 gal bucket about five or seven pounds at a time. It has become painfully clear that I did not wash it enough and water is still cloudy after twenty four hours. I am seriously contemplating taking it out and going with fine gravel unless someone with expierience can sooth my frustration . Would large water change or changes help? Or will water clear up after a while? I plan on running this tank for 10 days Heater, Filter, etc. before adding some tetras for cycling and plan on a shoal of pygmy corys hence the sand. Just want to do what needs doin now so as not to stress later. :)
