| || | Cloudy water
I have had my 36 gal tank for about 2 months now. The water has always been cloudy since I added the fish. I have had very high nitrite levels until the past 2 days, now I have nitrates also but they have never been very high probably because of almost daily 20% water changes. Now that my nitrite levels have dropped way down my water is still cloudy. It almost has a snowglobe look ,but with much smaller particles. Is this excess bacteria in the water? Will it go away on its own? I want clear water to enjoy my tank. I am running a fluval 305 with zeocarb, phos-zorb, ceramic cylinders, and water polishing pads; so I wouldn't think filtration would be a problem.
