You can buy carbon at any lfs or big petstore. It can add to cloudiness temporarily but will do well to clear up the water and get rid of the yellow tint.

You put it in you filter, depending on your setup you can put it in a reactor or just buy it in a pouch.

You absolutely must have patience in this. I think you are trying to rush it and it's making it take much longer. Mine took two days to clear, but you just have to let things do what they have to do.

when you add the carbon to your filter it may be cloudy temporarily, but it will clear up. depending on what you have going on, it can take a day or a week, but you HAVE to be patient.

do you have any powerheads/pumps circulating the water?
