ADA Aqua Soil - How Long Before Tank Clears
I added just under 9 liters of Amazonia Aqua Soil to my 10 gallon tank on Monday evening and it was very cloudy and still was the next morning when I left for a 2 day business trip in Maine and when I returned today, it's still cloudy! Anyone else having this problem?
The bag says not to wash it, so I didn't but now I'm wondering if it's a mistake to not rinse it somewhat. When I went to put a stem in the soil, it kicked up a cloud of dust, which leads me to believe there's going to be a problem every time I try to clean the tank.
The soil itself feels wonderful, it just grabs hold of the stems and holds the plant right in place. I would like to be able to see the plants in the back and also my fish, as I'm concerned that the PH is rather low and that it's also going to create another cycle.
Any ideas on how I can clear it out? I have an Aqua Clean HOB filter, I believe it's a 50, I use to run it on my 29 gallon tank, so it's powerful enough.
Thoughts, advice are great appreciated!
