i used playsand and mine clouded up big time aswell. for some reason it wouldnt clear for me. after a water change it was still cloudy but that seemed to be the catalyst since afterwards it has cleared up.

Yea I washed mine for like 30 mins, I have a feeling I'll have to do a couple of water changes to clear it up. I also have 3 filters running so that should help.

Still a little cloudy after 24 hours, did a 50% water change hopefully stuff will look better in the AM.

Thanks! It's a little discouraging that it's all cloudy but it should be find in a couple of days.

Hang in there it will be all worth it once it's cleared up. What are you running for lighting?

Tank looked allot clearer today after I did a 50% PWC and added floss to all my filters. Is it possible my lighting is making my water look cloudier than it really is? I am also getting a film that looks like dust ontop of my water, so I put in a bubbler to help break the surface of the water and that seemed to help. I don't want to keep keep that thing in there hopefully it goes away.

ARGH!

After finally getting the water almost 100% cleared up i noticed that there is a pretty good sized crack in one of the rocks towards the bottom, which means i have to drain and dry the tank to repair the crack to seal it. unless someone has an idea how to fix it with out doing this. its about a good 4 inches long.

I am about ready to give up on this stupid tank.
