Hey guys how long does it usually take for holey rocks to stop clouding the water? I think they must have been brand new I bought them off a private seller. My tank is very cloudy lol to the point I can't see the back of it and it's only 2 foot wide. I have done 2× 50% water changes and added a bottle of clarity (which did absolutely nothing haha). Any other suggestions?
So i have two tanks about 4m apart in the living room. The 8x2.5x2.5 with Tibetan mountain rock always looks really sharp and the water is crystal clear. Filtration on this big boy consists of 2 x FX6's + 3ft sump. Picture below (without fish as i removed them all today). On the opposite side of the room i have my Tropheus Lufubu tank which is 120cm x 80cm x 80cm and filtration consists of an Eheim Professional 3 2080 canister (basically a sump on wheels). This tank is filled with a heap of Texas Holey rock to help keep the carbonates and pH up and to give the Troph's somewhere to hide & play. Trouble is that the water in this tank since adding the rock seems to always look that bit more drab, dull and slightly cloudy / washed out than the other tank. I'm not sure if it's the way the light reflects off the white rock or something else? Lighting on both tanks is the same (Aquazonic Miracle LEDs) & both tanks have internal wavemakers to help with deadspots and circulation. Both tanks also have the same crushed coral as substrate. Looking for ideas, suggestions, thoughts as to why the Lufubu tank looks the way it does before i swap the Texas Holey rock to Tibetan mountain rock...

Hey everyone just chasing some nice rock for my 6 ft display want to rescape it, getting over the same look. What are some good holey rocks and where to find them. Prefer Black because have a white sand bottom, but does it look odd for black gravel and white rock. Thanks for any help Greg
