Gravel to sand community tank!

I currently went to gravel to sand and love it. I believe it matches my theme a lot better. I'm thinking about getting some Cory's because all of my fish are top swimmers!

It was a little messy and took a few hours. First I vacuumed the rocks and then started to scoop out the rocks then didn't realize how much waste is all through out the rocks. So I removed the fish to a plastic tub with the heater and air bubble then removed all the gravel. Then waited for all the waste to settle to vacuum up. I turned the filter off by now because of the water level. Then added the washed sand, added water and filter and let it sit for an hour to let it settle. My fish are doing great but the tank is still cloudy. I did it the hard way
