So, when i Last had an aquarium I used sand. I like it, I love Cory cats and loaches and other bottom dwellers. So I rinsed my sand and filled up this aquarium I've run my filter for 24 hours and the tank is still cloudy!! I can even see to the back! I just did a 90% water change and it's all kicked back up and even cloudier. Have I missed a step?? Why won't my water clear up? Don't worry there's no fish in there yet, I still have to cycle the tank, but I want my
Play sand is not best choice..Go with Pool filter sand and rinse well...
It would seem clear [no pun intended] that the play sand is not rinsed enough?

I have done several water changes. I am worried about the filter, but I wanted to make sure it is safe to add fish, my kids don't have the patience I have a few tetras could save me a world of headache
If you have to put fish right in then at least get Tetra Safe Start [TSS] or Dr. Tims One and Only to get the bacteria cycle started so you don't have get new fish every week.
I would want the water clear so you can see fish?
