Hi, I'm baffled and would appreciate your help.
I upgraded from a 20g to a 46g about a month ago and can't get the water to clear. It was close last night and I thought adding the Magnum HOT set up with a micron filter, added to my Emporer 400 was finally doing it, but this moring it's as dark as it's ever been.
Up 'til now, I'd been thinking I had a green water problem, but now I realize that getting darker over night is a repeating theme. That just doesn't make sense to me.
Ammonia - 0
Nitrite - 0
Nitrate - 0
Heavily planted - all doing very well
7 Dwarf Rainbowfish
2 Butterfly loaches
1 Otto cat
7 Sterbai cories
3 Dwarf Loaches
I use Flourish Excel a irregularly.
All fish seem health and happy. The rainbowfish exhibit mating activites.
I have to admit to overfeeding sometimes, but not last night and this mornings cloud is the worst ever. Besides, I didn't cause this in my 20 and my feeding habits haven't changed.
