Just started our new tank about a month ago, went from Flourite to Silica. This is "number 2" grain on a scale of 0-4. The look is great, and it cleans very well, but it clouds up the water very easily. I just did a re-scape and stirred the substrate quite a bit, I need a way to remove the cloudiness without a chemical solution. I have just added a few fish and don't want throw a whole pharmacy in there.
I have been reading up on using polyester fill in the filter to get rid of the cloudiness. Any advice on getting rid of the cloudy water, or "water polishing" as I have read?
