Cloudy?

Why is my fish tank kinda cloudy when my parameters are about 99% perfect. Tested about 4 days ago.
Last readings in aquarium profile.

Feeding once a day, filter clean.



Am I feeding too much? I have been using the "crumbs" leftover from a can of flake food. Are the pieces too small?

Some water supplies have alot of sediment. Where I live there is quite a lot and after a water change it takes a day or two for my filter to take care of it all. Another possibility is that there is something in your tank (wood, non-aquarium decor) that is leeching into the water. Could also be the filter, most filters are flow-by not flow through filters and many have media that is to porous for fine particles. We would need more info to pin it down. Tank size, filter, decor, etc. Pictures would help as well.

i have a minature water lily that was caked in mud at the roots.the sediment surfaces in time with the roots so my tank is clean only a few days when i cover all the roots but after that they resurface again and it will take time to set at the bottom.

Nobody must have looked at your tank. Are you referring to the 5g? If so, 4 mollies in a 5g tank is way overstocked. If this is the case, your filter will not be able to keep up with the waste that the 4 fish produce in such a small tank.
