Is anybody else ever used shale and crushed coral as a substrate. We just started using it and our water is really cloudy? Any solutions? Will the cloudiness disappear? Also, does the shale and crushed coral help with increasing the ph in the tank?

We washed the coral and the shale really well. Do you think it will take a few water changes to get the cloudiness to subside.

possibly...i didn't have very good luck with the crushed coral. it cleared up pretty well after a week or so but it always stayed a little cloudy so i switched to a differant substrate. But i do know a lot of people use the coral and like it though....
