I bought aqua pure activated carbon to put in my fluval, it's the first time I'm using carbon on my tank. And my tank right now is cloudy, is this normal? I rinsed the carbon before putting it in the fluval 204 filter.

only thing i can think of is the rinsing.... did you rinse it until the water coming off was clear?

I thought I rinsed it pretty good. When I just ran the water through the bag it was clear but when I squeezed the bag, the water was still turning little black. If it is the dust, would it clear up later though, or the water is going to stay like that?
