The dust will settle eventually. let the filter do the cleaning and rinse out you filter media often till the water clears up.

alright...after bothering everyone on here the whole day about this, **and other boards** I have finally read that the blurry cloudiness will go away within a week or too. Filter floss gets rid of it very quick.

yay! my tank is normal!

k ill shut up now
