I, too, put pounds of flourite into my tank without washing a single bit of it. I didn't have a diatom filter though. With lots and lots of water changes, it eventually goes away, but it is a nightmare. When I saw the first picture of the tank absolutely black-brown I must admit I was like LOLOL because I know exactly how it feels. I thought, "Ahh, another lazy person, I'm not the only one!"
Flourite is worth it though, IMO.
