Cloudy after adding crushed coral

My 20 gallon tall has been cloudy since I added crushed coral to the gravel. It's been 3 days. Is this normal? Should I do something about it or just wait it out?

It's stocked with 6 mystery snails and one albino bushy nose pleco.

I'm not positive but I think it's alright. A sponge filter could help clear up the cloudiness.

The dust will eventually settle. A weekly water change should go a long way towards solving the problem.

did you rinse off the dust before putting it in your tank?

My general rule for substrate is to rinse it out until it's clear, and then a dozen more times. It's a pain, but it's worth it to prevent just such a situation!
