I don't know what to tell you Danny. I was told eons ago by some members of this site to keep the ph's running because it helps the sand to settle. I've done this more than once and it works. Can't argue with success.

I think the best way to switch off the filter and PH. Let the sand and water settle for couple minute and start to switch on filter and follow by PH one by one. I used this method last night and I use PVC to pour in the sand into the tank. This morning the water looks clear. I more concern on the animal in the tank not on the water, because sooner or later the water will be clear.
