Im not sure if you mean when the tank will be clear or when the tank will be cycled, I will awnser both of them. The tank would most likley clear up with in a week or two but if you want it to clear faster than do small partial water changes every day till it clears up than wait a couple days before putting fish in. The tank willl most likley cycle or become astablished in 3 to 4 weeks, also your plants will help cycle or establish your tank and add in some fish food every once in a wile in those 3 to 4 weeks and that will help to then add some hardy fish.

thanks. the tank will be two  weeks old on thursday. so if doesn't clear up yet by then can i do a 75% water change for it clear up faster?
