Cloudiness
 
I just added my new substrate (gravel) and now the tank is extremely cloudy. I rinsed and boiled all of my rock, cleaned it as best I could but it's very cloudy. Is this safe? Should I do a massive water change or should I wait? :?

No need. I just added my tank with new gravel and my tank is still slightly cloudy at the moment. That will settle with time.

Even washing thoroughly generally will not help at all. Let it settle and relax.:mrgreen:

Blue thanks for the quick reply! I was actually sitting here very worried about it. It's nice to finally have gravel in my tank and look at it and I added my decorations (rather hastily...I'll have to redo it) but by the time I came to sit down and enjoy it I was like "NoooOOOOooOOOOO!!!!!!"

Once things clear up and I redo some of my decorations I'll be sure to post some pics! :thankyou:

Woke up this morning and it's gotta be at least 60% better....still not crystal clear, but it's much much better! :thumbsup:
