I can't get my water to clear , suggestions ? I rinsed out the sand about ten times before putting it in & have done four 75% water changes since last night . I also have carbon in a stocking in the filter . I put gravel , rocks , tiki man , and filter media from my established freshwater to get the ball rolling on cycling .

Wait, wait, and wait some more there's not much you can do about cloudiness. Tank looks great though!

Ugh . Is there a vial of patience I can buy any where ?? Also for my end result I want a nice peice of dw . I'm just waiting until I can find a peice I like. I was also thinking about painting some dangling roots on the back of the back glass . I saw a background with it and thought It was really cool .
