White Particles In Tank? Question

    It seems whenever I siphon the gravel or put new water in, things get quite stirred up and it makes the water look foggy temporarily. I attached a picture of what it looks like. Is this normal? Is it harmful? It eventually settles down and the water becomes more clear again. My tank is filtered, too.

    It’s called detritus.
    Yes, it’s normal, and it won’t harm anything.
