new cichlid tank is foggy, Help!!
i got a new tank for christmas and decided to make it a cichlid tank, as i already have a tropical community, and a crayfish tank. well we set it up and let it do its 24 hour filtering before i tested it. the pH was high because it hadn't been treated yet. so i treated it waited a few more hours to take a water sample to the store. they told me my water was fine, so we bought our fish. we only got 4 so we wouldn't overload ourselves, the tank or the new fish. last night i was watching tv and noticed the tank seemed a little bit cloudy, but assumed it was because we haven't put the background on yet and its against a white wall. this morning i woke up and the tank is much more foggy than it was last night. is this because its a new tank and has to work itself out? i dont remember it happening to my tropical tank but then again i put the background on as soon as i set it up. i don't want to treat it anymore because i don't want to stress the fish anymore yet. any ideas? knock on wood no one has died, so i want to kick it in the butt before they do...cichlids are expensive!!!
thanks in advance
