theres actually ALOT of BB that lives in the bed of your aquarium, your tank is prob going through a mini cycle to balance things out, give it a week or so and everything should be good dont worry man levels dont spike or anything crazy your oscars will be okay~

Just hover your syphon just above the sand and you will see the poo getting sucked up off the top of the sand. Sometimes a bit of sand will come up too but not enough to have to replace. After I've cleaned the sand I'll usually run a stick or my fingers through it to get rid of any air/gas bubbles.

If you just added unwashed sand to the tank, it'll depend on your filter system: Some will clear that up in 1 day, others in 1 week. So just give it lil time and all will be fine
