Live sand usually comes with a rectifier or mine did its in a little packet somewhere in the bag pour that in and it makes the silt settle within a day. Idk if different brands do not have a packet but should settle eventually just letting u know about the packet in case its in ur tank somewhere

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one, I started a tank yesterday and mine looks exactly the same with nothing in it so far but sand. It's so thick and murky it's impossible to see anything.

Rinsing your sand out is a must in my opinion. I always rinse mine out about 10 times before putting it in the tank, you guys can see why :P On a side note particles do settle quicker in salt water...i doubt raising your salinity to 1.025 will be enough of a change to quicken the process much though haha

Well I'l post a picture tomorrow as well. Hopefully it starts to clear up. I didn't have a package in my tank, although when I introduced the black live sand there were multiple small woodchips.. Hmm

Well. when I was saying to raise the salinity I was only saying that because 1.014 is not enough to support fish
