If you didnt rinse the sand a lot of times prior to putting it in your tank then it will cloud up and might take a week to settle.

But i did the same thing with my 14 gallon and it did not look like that.But the sand i used seems to fell fine in the cloudy tank.My 14 gallon tank the sand feels gritty.

Yes i really like it.Now i want to turn our 55 gallon into saltwater now.I have a pair clowns and 2 spotted cardinals and i cannot add anymore fish because of the female clown. I put a shrimp in there and a firefish and she killed both of them.Do u have a clue in how i can add more fish? I have them in a 14 gallon till i can get the 29 cleared up then i am gonna switch them over.
