ADA Aquasoil dusty - cleaning it
Hi guys, new here.
I have such insane amounts of dust in and on top of the substrate, that my water won't clear up. Any tiny disturbance, even a fish swimming by, will cause a dust storm. To prevent this from happening I'm either planning to put pool filter sand on top, or use a gravel vacuum and suck all of the dust out.
Since the sand will probably end up underneath the substrate, I prefer to use the vacuum cleaner. However, I'm not sure if it'll get the dust out and/or if it's suitable to use with ADA. It seems lighter than regular gravel, so it might get sucked through the hose.
Does anyone have experience with either vacuuming it or topping it off? Would this solve the dust issue?
Note: the dust isn't waste, it's actual dust from the substrate. Tank has been running for 2 months after a move and has been cloudy ever since.
