Just set up my 50 gallon octagon tank last night. Used organic compost soil at base and planted aquarium substrate on top. Filled with water hose and added API Stress Coat +. (Accidentally doubled the amount not realizing). The filter is new. Just opened it last night. Its a Penn-plax Cascade 1000 canister filter. It has a bag of activated charcoal in one of the trays. Its for a 100 gallon tank so its well enough filtration for my 50 gallon. The filter hasn't stopped running. everything is settled but the water is still this really dark yellow color. Like the color of nicotine 🤮. There is no fish or plants in it yet. Its in front of a window but the blinds stay shut most the time. No sun has touched the tank. I've read that organic compost can release Tannin or organic acid which can cause yellow/brown discoloring. I had a piece of driftwood floating at the top to get it ready to place inside. Took it out a few mins ago. How can I get my tank clear? I would rather not replace the soil if I really don"t have to. I haven't gotten a water testing kit yet so dont know the levels of anything at the moment.
