I know. Dumb mistake. I guess the excitement of getting a tank started up got the best of me.
Nothing is in the tank yet besides some driftwood and large rocks. Should I empty the tank and rinse the fluorite and gravel or will it eventually clear up? It's been 5 days now. I have a wet dry filter with some filter pads trying to clear up the water.
We're talking about emptying a 90 gallon tank and washing 3 25lbs bags of gravel and 2 15lbs bags of fluorite.
Suggestions?

Well, I drained the tank and removed everything. Washed all the gravel and fluorite and put everything back together. Figured I should start over and do it right. It was probably a good thing I did because every time i touched the gravel, a big dark cloud would appear.
Right now the filter is off to let everything settle. I'll start the filter in the morning and hopefully things will have cleared up.
