I don't post much, but I value expertise and friendly nature of this site. I have run into a bit of a problem and am wondering if you could provide some answers.
I am no stranger to setting-up planted tanks with Eco complete as I currently have three tanks with this substrate. The fourth tank I tried to set-up today, but have run into a bit of a snag.
When emptying the bags into my tank, I noticed that these bags contained more water than any of the previous bags I had used. This water was a muddy brown . I went ahead and added it anyways, but am now a bit concerned as my tank is currently a milky brown color and as the particles precipitate out they are leaving a brown film on top of the substrate.
To illustrate my point here are a few images:
Is this something to be concerned about, or was I sold a bad bag?
