Eco-complete, Vacuum afterwards?

I put eco complete in a new tank. The water has ccleared up BUT if the gravel is stirred up just a LITTLE bit, white cloud comes up.... and clouds the water.. What do I do? Do I just keep changing water? vacuum the eco? what?

I vacuum mine often in the beginning. After 3-4 vacuums and a week or two it will settle down nicely.

You might want to check out this thread:

It sounds like you might have the cloudiness issue associated with some bad batches of eco-complete. This happened quite a while back, but I suppose there could still be some bad bags floating around. Where did you get the eco from?
