ive rinced it about 50 times and the water is still yellow in the bucket and some of the sand particles are so small that im worried about it ruining my xp5 canister filter, should i not use this sand? i looks like salt and pepper but the size of the grains vary,is it ok if the water is brown/yellow when stiring it up in the cleaning bucket? it all sett les in about 5 minutes, im not sure if i should use it? any ideas? thanks!
