Cloudy water?

Hey all!! I have had a 20 gallon long set up for a few months now, and my molly just gave birth. The water looks really cloudy though, and I was wondering if it could be from her giving birth perhaps? Now, I also have a 90 gallon in which my mollies have given birth several times, but being as the tank is much bigger, I never noticed the water getting clouded. Is this something normal?

Not sure what that is. I recomend a 10-20% water change.

My tank water only ever goes cloudy after a water change but after 24 hours or so it settles.

Do you reguarly clean your tank out? Is there a possibility the cloudyness you are seeing as due to a recent water change? Allow 24 hours after a water change for your tank to settle (if this is the case).

Well the water still looks cloudy. I did do about a 50% water change along with gravel suction about 4-5 days before I noticed the water going cloudy. I do 10-20% water changes at least once a week in that tank, and this has never happened before. I usually put in a little salt, some Cycle, and balance the water out if needed after a large water change, and never had a problem. I did get a new light in there the day I did the large water change/gravel cleaning, could new lighting perhaps make the water cloud? And it is not to the point you can't see anything in the tank, but its hazy (sp?) in there. Thanks everyone for the replies.

You might be overfeeding. My water sometimes gets cloudy after I use too many fish flakes. Try using less, maybe it'l work.

Well I feel pretty stupid right about now. Apparently my filter has been broken for at the least a week, maybe more, and I didn't notice until now. Soooo I got a new one and I am betting that will clear my cloudy water problem up lol. Sometimes stress can make you overlook the simplest things
