Flourite Dust

Ok, It's been over a week since I scooped out all of my bad gravel and replaced it with 150 pounds of Flourite. Most of the dust has settled, but the water still looks very hazy. Can anyone give me an idea of how long it will take for all the dust to settle?

How well did you rinse the Flourite before adding it to the tank? The less you rinse up front, the longer it will take to settle the first time and each subsequent time. Check your filter to see if the cartridge is clogged with dust. You'll probably have to rinse it on a fairly regular basis to help the tank clear.

Or, you can use some filter floss in your filter. I underwent a substrate change not long ago and used flourite...cloudiness disappeared within a day or two. You may have to change it out depending on the amount of material floating around.
