Okay so I'm starting my first planted tank (and first one with sand) and I THOUGHT I rinsed the sand pretty well, the water was running clear out of the bucket. Put the sand in, then filled up my 5 gallon tank. 5 hours later the water is still extremely cloudy.
Do I need to wait longer or should I take the water out and re-rinse the sand?
And what happens when I do a water change and have to disturb the sand by pouring water in? (no fish in tank yet)
