What type of filter are you using? I have a straight mud bottom tank with no capping and the water stays very clear once things have settled. I'm thinking that you could likely throw a fine sponge or some aquarium cotton (not sure what it's technically called) into your filter for a day or two and it would likely clean up any fine fine clay particles stuck in suspension and then you wouldn't have to do anything else.
