Thanks Crepe. If this is an ongoing problem do you have any idea of what I could use to replace the CC substrate? I have only one fish right now, Foxface, who seems happy in the aquarium by his/her self. This would be the time to change the substrate before I add more fish. Thanks again.

There was a really good post about this awhile back. Someone suggested that you could scoop out about 1/4 of the CC and replace it with aragonite sand (rinsed really good). Wait a week (so the good bacteria can seed the sand) and do it to another 1/4 of your CC. I was contemplating doing this because I have CC, but I vacummed today and had no cloudiness at all.

And before you ask how they got the sand to go to the spot you scooped out, there was a pic of a gallon milk jug, cut half-way and taped to some PVC pipe. Then they would place the sand in the milk jug and it would go down the PVC to whatever spot they chose. A very inexpensive but very reliable way of doing it !!

Thanks for your suggestion. I'll probably be visiting my LFS in Dover, Del. next week and I'll see if they have the sand.
