Cloudy.....Cloudy

Well I made the move from my 46 gallon to a 55 gallon almost two weeks ago. It was getting really clear and this morning I woke up and it was cloudy again. The only thing I did was put a new wet/dry filter on the tank and used my tank water also I left my HOB filter on so this one can build up the bio and not put the tank in shock. Any ideas?? As always thanks in advance!!!

Could be a bacterial bloom. Did you test for ammonia and nitrite? So you moved your HOB from the 46 over to this 55? Is the fish load the same as what was in the 46?

Yes I moved the HOB over with the same fish load. The filter is fit for a 70gallon so I dont think that is it. I need to test the water. I will get back to you.
