Cycling with shrimp - Cloudy Tank
I started cycling a 75 gal with shrimp 2 days ago. Other than a few problems with the filter, everything was fine for the first and second day. Today I went to look at the tank and it is pretty cloudy. I tested the water and the ammonia is still very low. Is this normal? I have been looking at methods of cycling, but none of the ones i have read said the water should get cloudy. I am going to add some gravel and a decoration from an established tank now, good or bad idea with cloudy water?
Random note - To anyone who has the Marineland Emperor 400 - Was the filter running at full capacity within the first couple days?
