Such cloudy, cloudy water

Oh riparium, why do you vex me so?  I mineralized the soil for 5 days, sifted it, mixed it with clay, and then left it in the bottom of the tank for a day to sit before planting a red tiger lotus, a java fern, and three corkscrew valances, then added a well rinsed flora max cap, and water (slowly and along the glass wall!).  And the result?   The plants all uprooted themselves and the water is super cloudy,  even after a water change.  I’m not deterred, and have no doubt all will work out in a a few days, but I firmly believe in sharing the bad with the good.  Cloudy water, I hate you!!!  The horror….the horror…
