    MY SAND CLEARED UP COMPLETELY! I put back in my decorations and such, but right when i turned on my patrick star bubble house... BOOM sand just blows up again. Im jsut going to wait till it settles again. Will it be long till the sand settles again?

    Yup, it will settle again.

    Yesterday I had to drain about 75% of the water and remove all the decorations in my 55 gallon to catch a fry and re-connect the air stone (one of the fish had knocked off the tubing). When I got it all set up again the water was so cloudy I could barely see the back of the tank. But it cleared up eventually.

    I had sand in my 5 gallon and even if i looked at it sideways it would cloud up but it only tanks a day or so to come back down, good luck!

    BTW, if you haven't put your fish back in that tank yet, it might be a good idea to do so even if it is cloudy. Without an ammonia source, your bacteria will start dieing.
