I just switched out my gravel to Black sand and the water is very cloudy. I am not sure how long i have to wait to add my fish back to the tank. Does the water need to settle completely? I thought i had cleaned the sand well enough but apparently not. Being that the sand is black so is my water. I did this an hour ago. Any suggestions would be very helpful

Thanks bunches,
Diana

Let it run overnight and it should clear up.

ok thanks, I did a 30% water change just in case. It has cleared up a bit. I can actually see the sand now lol. :)

I just switched all my fish from a 55 gal to a 75gal last night and although the water was a little cloudy I put the fish in there and they are doing fine. It normally takes a couple days for it to fully settle and to filter out the fine particles.
