Dirted Tank Peeps!

For those of you who used the Scott Topsoil, did yours give the water a brownish tint very very similar to the look of tannins in the water? Did it go away after water changes?

Thanks!

all soils will do this. i usually do 3 water changes the 1st day, 1 every other day for a week, and then on to my normal 1 per week thereafter.

it'll be clear after a month.
