I've had my tank for about a year now... when i first added the driftwood my water was brownish color but eventually cleared.
My nitrate is about 10ppm, and the Nitrite is pretty much 0. Water is hard about 100ppm, Alkalinity is between 120-180ppm. pH is 7.2. Unfortunately i dont have an ammonia tester.
My water was actually a lot clear once tank finished cycling, took about 2 months for the reading to stabilize and water to clarify. And since i've added plants and a couple more fish i haven't had clean water.
As for the filter i have a Whisper Power 20 which came standard with the kit and i change out the filter cartridge evey month.
Someone outside the forum recommended i add aquarium salt? But i haven't done my research on that yet, any thoughts?
