so like you didn't rinsed our the sand good enough before you add them in your tank...it take time to settle down...24-48 would do it with good filteration...or you didnt cycle your tank!...give us more infor.
alots of people think their rinsed out the sand good..take your time to rinsed it..rins it little by little...also depending what kind of sand you use..if you use playsand it will take you a long time to rins it out..if you use pool sand it doenst take long to rins and it will clear by with in 24hr.
put the sand in 5gallon bucket
use a garden holes and put it inside the bucket with the sand
turn the water on and leave to hole in the bucket
the water will overflow the bucket with cloudy water
stare and rins the sand with your hand...
do that untill you dont see the cloudy ness water come out from the bucket. take your time and do it little by little.
