try running a sponge filter for the 1st couple weeks ,. thats what i had done and it cleared up everything in a day, ive caped dirt with sand,litter clay and gravels ,. i like the results of capping the dirt with litter clay the most sand a close second and gravel was the messiest
Tha water is still cristal clear and everything seem to bee doing good.
I can see small traces of dirt on top of the sand layer but it Does not affect the water color. Maybe there are some air or gasses that has to bee realesed in the start of a dirt tank, it seems to settle.
I dont now why my water got cloudy when using 2-4 mm gravel, reading on the internett i see most dirt tanks use gravel with no problem. Maybe i should have been waiting more than two weeks beafore changing the cap too sand?
