Yes it's still a little cloudy but I bet that a whole lot better than before. It will be like that till the filter remove it. But that not a big deal probably a week or so and it will be crystal clear

Once you start getting fish and rock in there you won't notice it. I would just tell him that for the first couple of water changes stir up the sand and it will all be removed faster.

Well that depends does he have a filter that has been cycled so that the fish will be ok? If no then I wouldnt add fish. He can however add decor heater bubbler filter exc. If your tank filter is cycled then yes he can add fish but I would do any aquascaping first as to not stress the fish when by adding it when they are in there

I would suggest doing all rocks plants aqua-scapping before the fish are in. That way no one gets trapped under a rock and you won't stress the fish out as much since he's just putting the fish in for the first time.

Make sure that he dosent over stock the tank. He dose have seeded filter which is good it just need a little time to grow. Add a couple of fish and in a week or so add a couple more would be the best was just to play it safe.

If he already has the fish and has to put a large number in watch the water perimeters closely and I would suggest doing a small water change daily just to insure no toxic build up.
