i changed my gravel today to crushed coral. my buddy was helping me. long story short i asked him to rinse the new stuff and he forgot the tank is extremely cloudy. i have my fish in it will they be ok or should i do a water change now?

check out the pic see for yourself i cant see in teh tank. picutre was taken about 10 mins after gravel put in

Completely up to you..... I'd do it just to get more of the particulates out, but that is chiefly for aesthetic reasons.

i dont care if i takes a few days to settle just worried it may affect the fish??
