How should I clean this sand?

CoconutTheBetta

Hi!

I currently have my betta in a bucket and I'm redoing her tank entirely. I started by adding more sand to what she currently has. This sand is from my old betta tank; It's been washed. But I guess I didn't do it correctly! I had just poured the sand into the water and gave it time to settle. Which it did! But there's some type of dirt at the top.

The photo may give you shivers.

Should I clean it with a siphon? Should I mix it up? What do I do?
The sand is Carib Sand so it's fine.

I’d siphon what you can and see how you get on. You may have to suck up a bit of the sand with it but you can always top it back up with new.
