I bought play sand and the bag said washed and cleaned so I assumed it was ready. I poured it in my clean tank and added water and it clouded up so thickly you couldn't see two inches in. I tried using my Python water changer to suck out dirty water and it made no difference. So I lowered and kept the water level at about 2-4'' . Then using the python with low vacuum I started shoving it down into the sand and pulling it back out of the sand to let the heavy sand drop but it keeps sucking the light sand that clouds the water. Just like when you do a heavy gravel cleaning. About 30-45 minutes of this and it's done.
