FREAKIN FIXED!!! Stupid issue is gone!! Water is 100% clear!

I got some blasting sand (very course) and then removed about 1/4'' of ADA. Made sure that the sides had no ADA so that the sand will sit low in the corners.

After a day my tank is 100 percent clear. I dont think its the fault of the ADA soil. I think that since my ADA soil was used, I got the lower bottom portion and even though it wasnt degrading....it still had a little bit of sheadding to do.

Im happy, still got the ADA for dirt cheap, and didnt spend a ton of money on black substrate.
