Finally put the substrate back in and have everything clear again! Took two days total for the water to clear up, so I am a little scared to rearrange anything right now. It is strange because this hasn't happened before in any of my dirt+sand tanks. Oh, well. Anyways, the girls are all in and reset their hierarchy. They are all happy now.
When I just put the substrate back in
After half an hour
A few hours later
The next morning
The day after
I will snap some new pics of the girls later today. My parakeet is being needy.
Oh, I will also be getting some new girls this Saturday (If they are on sale. Strapped for cash
Also, does anyone have any suggestions as to getting that dirt gunk off of the sand cap?
