Help! added substrate now water is totally opaque
I've added JBL substrate and aquarium sand to my sand, my fish are all in a temporary tank. started to add water back in tank (170ltrs) now half full. the water is completley opaque, cant see through it at all. should i run the external filter to clear it or should I leave filter off in the hope that the water settles, am worried that this may clog my filter (aqua one 1200) and also need to get the fish back in asap???
any help would be fantastic, i'm freaking out a bit.
have you got the filter running in the tank that the fish are in ?
the sand will settle once you are finished,then for the little
bit that is left the filter should take it out,if possible put some filter wool in the filter to catch the fine particals.
Did you rinse the sand REALLY good? I had to rinse mine like 17 times before the water ran clear.
Thanks guys, I kept the filter in the tank the fish were in and everything setted in a couple of hours. the water is now clear and fish and filter are all back in the main tank.
thanks for the help xx
fantastic,glad it worked out. :)
