Hello! So yesterday I finally added sand to my 20 gallon. It’s been in there almost a full 24 hours now. When should I be able to turn my filter back on? The water is growing quite stagnant at this point. I’ve heard a couple people say to wait until it has all completely settled and there is no cloudiness, but at this point I’m quite confident that all the large particles have settled and the rest is just the result of not enough rinsing. Should I be safe to turn my filter back on or should I wait until it’s completely clear? I just don’t want my filter being messed up. Thanks in advance! Edit: also, would water changes help with the cloudiness any? And if so, about when should I do a water change/how much should I take out?
