    Hi guys! I have a small problem. I bought a Juwel rekord 600 tank and some aragonite sand. I've put the sand In the tank then slowly added water. The problem is that every time I touch something in the tank (cleaning the filter etc.), everything goes cloudy again. I then decided to wash the sand and I've been washing a cup full of sand for the past hour and It's still cloudy. BTW I've got 10kg's of aragonite sand.

    Your water you are washing the aragonite is a low pH so the calcium is devolving. Hence the milky water.
