Cycling 55 gallon
I got bacteria bloom in my 55 gallon tank that I set up last Sunday. The bloom happened on Tuesday and the water is still turbid. I used gravel from another tank and also put in gunk from my 20 gallon Aqueon hang-over-back power filter. I also threw in a raw shrimp for good measure. Any idea if the water should be clear by now? Also, how often should I do water changes (if at all)? I haven't put in any fish yet. Plants are
1 Java moss
1 Cryptocoryne wendtii
1 C. usteriana
5 aponogenton rhizomes that just sprouted.
The tger lily and onion seem to be taking their own sweet time to sprout.
Suggestions, instructions etc. would be greatly appreciated.
