Are you sure about that lol... My 5.5 betta tank has been setup for like 2 weeks now and it has been cloudy for almost all 2 weeks... The ammonia is at like 4.0 and wont go down... My nitrite is 0 and my nitrate is at 0-5ppm which is what the tap water has... So how can the cloudiness be bacteria eating ammonia when I have no nitrates and nitrites..
