| || | cloudy water - what is it and how to fix it?
We set my gfs 10 gallon up no too terribly long ago. it has sand, decorations, and a penguin filter. it has been running fishless since we set it up. I washed the sand very very very well. I also set her 5 gallon up before that and it looks perfectly fine and has been housing 3 zebra danios. for some reason the 10 has gotten cloudy water. I was going to start doing daily partial water changes, but decided i didn't want to waste water treatment until i knew what it was. It could be a bacteria bloom - but what causes it and why? What else could it be? And how do i get rid of it? Thanks.
