When I get ready to put everything in my tank and fire it up I was planning on doing the cheese cloth/colander thing to rinse the sand. I will report back with my results when I do. I would not wait for me though, it is going to take a few months to get to the point where it is time to add water and cycle. I refuse to charge anything for my hobby so I have to put a few bucks away every paycheck to finance the setup.
