Thanks Paul,

I learn about the Purigen the hard way first, haha.

What i ended up doing was a 60% water change using the Siphon, and focused on really trying to pull all the particulate from the substrate. After doing this, replacing the water, along with the filter floss/Purigen the result is very good.

Shame on me for not doing a good enough job of washing the substrate out of the gate.
