Sorry, this is off topic, so I'll keep it short, but you mentioned you use sand. How on earth do you do it? I recently put some play sand into one of my tanks because I liked the look of it...and 24 hours later the water is *still* cloudy from the particulate. Do I just need to dump it all out and start again?
Is there a certain type of sand to use, one that is denser/larger/not as likely to cloud the water?
Again, sorry to hijack the thread, feel free to message me with details so that this thread can get back on target. :)
