How do i get rid of dust cloud?

Any suggestions? It has a HOB filter only. Should I keep it on? Also, I have 2 power heads? Should they be on? Anyway to do this quickly? Thanks.

Throw some filter floss in your HOB and turn them all on

You should be able to get it at any pet store or your LFS.

If you have a sponge in your filter that'll do fine

I'd do so, it'll help get any other "dust" particles up from around the tank.

If you want to save some money you could buy a large bag of polyfil (instead of floss) from a fabric or hobby store for about six bucks. Fairfield is the brand I use, no additives in it. Just shove a chunk in the filter and change every two weeks or so, it will last you a long time.

Alright thanks for the replies! I got some filter fiber, going to see if it does anything.

Guys, the water is STILL cloudy! I heard there was a liquid that clumps the sand together, but I'm not sure what it's called, can anyone tell me?
