Cloudy water...

My dad just set up his tank 92 gallon last night, and I don't think he rinsed his dry sand enough. His water is cloudy still this morning. About how long should it take to clear up? Is there anything that will expedite the process?

Yea I had that same problem I just waited it out it took a day or two to clear up and if you are using bag filters you might want to check them because my filters were full of sand

I did the same thing as well. Mine took 2-3 days.
