So I️ recently set up my 37 Gal tank that I️ got from petsmart, Added the substrate to the aquarium and added water and it’s been foggy for the past 24 hours cleared up a little but is still super foggy. I️ think it was the dirt material I️ used, But I️ did rinse it first as the directions stated. Please help!

Welcome!! Mine did that when I first set it up - I thought I had rinsed the substrate very well, water running clear etc. but it really was just from the substrate and cleared up pretty quickly with the filter running. I wouldn't panic too much. If it really bothers you, stick some quilting floss in the filter, It could be dirt or it could be bacteria, either way the filter will take care of it as good bacteria grow in the filter with your cycling to eat the bad bacteria and the quilting floss catching everything else..
