In my dirt tank, the water cleared in 3-5 weeks, but i restricted water changes to 20% once a week. Using Purigen will help, it'll clear over days than weeks, but it's a pricey option.

March Update

Had a major itch to re-scape and cut back the plants... Happy now. At least the neons can swim and school properly.
