29 gallon, Marineland Penguin BioWheel 150b filter, heater, gravel, air pump on small bubblewand, fake and real plants (currently not using any plant food). Established and fully cycled.
Water parameters checked daily at the moment and they are consistant with stability and the tank is ammonia free, and the pH is sitting at a healthy 6.9 .
I have done partial water changes of about 20-30% about twice a week to help fix this cloudiness with no success, even lately been doing them a bit more often...last one was about 16 hours ago as well as good gravel vacuuming (which is done weekly). I have cleaned the filter, I have cut back on feeding the fish, and also tried treating the tank with Aqueon Water Clearifier, all with no such luck.
I have been fighting this cloudiness for at least 2-3 weeks now. I am tired of it, and want it back to crystal clear.
There is some algae that has started growing on the front wall that you can see if you look closely, and although tank is not in the sunlight, at one point in the day two small rays of sunlight hit the corner of the tank for about 2 hours. Could this be an algae bloom???
If it helps, here is my stock list:
6 serpae tetras all about 1 1/4"
6 brilliant rasboras all about the same size as the tetras.
4 habrosus cory, all about 1/2"-3/4"
1 clown pleco, about 1.5"
1 Albino Rainbow Shark, almost 2 inches.
Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated as I am about out of ideas except for the thought that it could be an algae bloom.
