Flourite Dark

I've rinsed my flourite dark quite alot and its still cloudy and i was wondering if just using an activated carbon filter will help remove the cloudyness.

It will but I might suggest using something less easily stopped up. The pores on carbon are great but they do get filled quickly and then they become pretty useless so the dust will do it in pretty quickly. My choice for this is simple filter floss as being able to handle more of the bulk mass of dust and very cheap.
Nothing wrong with using the carbon. Just that I might see it as overkill for the dust.
