Cloudy Tank

I put crushed coral in my tank today and it left it cloudy. I rinsed it and got it as clean as it would come. Will the tank filter itself out? It there anything I can do?

It should clear up within a few days depending on water flow. No mater how much you rinse the sand or crushed coral you will always have some degree of extra fine particulate mater that ends up free floating in the water for a short period.
