    can i put my betta fish in the water even though its super cloudy from new gravel? the water is basically black. I put water clarifier in the tank which is supposed to help but itll probably take a while to work

    i know its not dyed gravel, Im using AquaSolum black humate. So its basically just dirt thats floating around. Should i still wait a day before putting my fish back in?
