    How long does it take for sand to settle in a new tank

    I just set up my new 20 Gallon tank with sand. The water right now is very murky and I was wondering how long it takes for this to settle. Does it matter if I run my pump and/or heater while waiting for it? Not sure if that'd speed it up or slow it down. Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!

    Sand storms

    i have my tank up and ready, but the sand storm is still everywhere... But at this time is it bad to run the filter, pump and skimmer? I just don't want the good bacteria to die because of low oxygen(I have my heater on)
