added substrate to established aquarium

673 3
Hi all,

I have just added Seachem fluorite to my 35gallon established aquarium because the roots were sticking out of the sand. I added it this morning by rinsing it then placing it in a mason jar and pouring it into the tank, about 1 inch from the surface of the sand. I thought this would eliminate the cloudiness but I was wrong. The tank is extremely cloudy. I turned off my filters so that the clay would not wreck it. I am afraid my fish and plants will not survive this. I already did a 10 gallon water change.

Any advice?

Is there any safe kinds of settling agents to help speed up this process?
