Filling tank - So Cloudy

    I am filling my 60 gallon cube with sand and water yesterday. I washed the sand in a 5 gallon bucket for 45 minutes non-stop to get the dust and debris out. The water always remained milky looking.

    After 10 hours of resting, the water is still milky. What else should I do?

    It takes a while! What filtration are you running? Can you do a filter sock? You could also get some filter floss or you have a spot. The bottom line is that it could take a couple days...

    Expect this to take several days. The milkiness after that time frame isnt sand, it's a bacteria bloom.
