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.
