I drained the tank and refilled it the same way, this time vacuuming all the particles before turning on the filter. Yet again I ended up with a cloudy tank a day later. Both times the tank ends up as a yellow-brown cloudy mess.
I'm at a loss for ideas at this point. What can I do to clear up my tank? Can I use a product like Seachem Clarity or API Accu-Clear? Are these safe for invertebrates?
kill the lights and turn off the filters. Should clear up and a couple of days.
