So, my boyfriend and I are starting up our 55 gal tank. We bought pool filter sand, 30 grit, as our soil since it was recommended to us by a few different people and was fairly cheap.
We poured in the sand and filled up the tank. Not surprisingly, the sand lifted and clouded the water. We figured it would settle but it barely has. How long does it normally take to settle and is there anything else we should do?
