|tiggity||WC, WC and more WC will clear the water. Also Purigen helps as well. I have a smaller dirted tank and it probably took 2-3 weeks for the water to clear but still have a little brown tint I notice during WC's.|

wow the water is still pretty cloudy but nothing a few water changes won't clear up, my tanks been running about 6 - 7 weeks so far and I still have tannins in the water and air bubbles floating out of the substrate every few minutes it's a process from what I've read it can take 2 - 4 months for the majority of the decomposition to finish up until then your going to have air bubbles percolating outta the substrate.
Might also want to try a fine filter pad or filter floss to help polish your water it will catch a lot of the really fine stuff that's in the water column. It helps catch a lot of fine debris but there will always be some until the tank ages a bit.

|Sd760||Ya. What the! I'm stressing. Should I add more of a cap? There has been tons of out gassing bubbles. I have been probing to help release pockets and try to prevent toxicity.|

|StraightAddicted||Congrats on the growth of the plants, they are looking great. Can't wait to do similar set up to get more growth out of my plants. Just clean the filter weekly and 20 percent water changes, and it will clear up. Keep up the hard work!|
