It has been a week and I still stand by my initial comment.

I bought two bags of the Flourite red, which seem to be bigger pieces and rinsed quite easily. I put the two bags over top and everything seems to be much better now and has settled down.

Thanks everyone for your help it is much appreciated.

I'd like to chime in too. Also I have a question.

I just bought a bag of red Flourite because I want to start planting my tank and I heard good things from everyone about it. I rinsed the crap out of it before I mixed it with my natural gravel. I've never had a substrate this dusty so obviously I underestimated it.

Right now my black moore is back in his tiny 5 gallon with nothing else around him. I feel bad lol.

I rinsed the flourite, added it to the tank, realized how screwed I was, and did a full water change. I added the water back in very slow but it's still about the same cloudiness after an hour. I'm able to see the filter stem coming down the back so that's a plus I guess.

Any idea on how long you think before it's safe enough to put the fish back where he belongs?

Thanks!
