Hi all,

I'm new to El Natural style tanks, but I've had community tanks before, both with real and fake plants. I just set up my 20 gallon El Natural on Saturday night and it's a bit hazy from the sand (it's nearly impossible to fully rinse the sand). I've read in several places on this board that Seachem's Purigen is a great product for reducing haze. Only problem is, none of the pet or fish stores where I live carry it. Are there any products that do a similar job? Tetra brand or something a little more widely known?

I'll post pictures soon, but at the moment it's only residents are 20 ghost shrimp and 4 neon tetras. The other inhabitants are in hospital tanks battling ick. (They used to live in a 10 gallon with a couple of goldfish. One of the goldfish would come down with ick at the drop of a hat, but he's since passed. The other goldfish will have a tank all to himself.) That's 3 black skirt tetras, 3 fruit tetras (I'm not sure what else to call them), 3 raspboras (I think, they're red and black and look tetra-ish), a leopard danio and a clown loach. I can't think of the plant names, but there are quite a few.

Instead of looking for a commercial product, you could just do a water change or wait it out. That's what I'm doing with my new 55 gal setup.
