New to the freshwater aquarium hobby. I have a 10 gallon tank, with a heater, and Top Fin 10 Power filter. The temp right now is at 80. I have one male betta, 3 cherry barbs, 3 Sunburst Wag Platys and one (small) Pleco.
I set this tank up about a week or so ago. I knew nothing about cycling the aquarium or anything. My tank has been cloudy since about Tuesday the 24th. I have changed about 50% of the water twice now, and made sure my filter was clean, rinsed etc. I do not leave the light on all day, and like I said the temp is about 80. I do not have a test kit, although I hope to be getting one soon. Why is my tank water cloudy.
When I started it, i used gravel on the bottom (rinsed well) and tap water. I added the Aqua safe, as well as Stress Coat and Stress Zyme, samples that were included in my 10 gallon kit. I have several hidey holes and decorations, and several live plants. My fish only get feed about 2 a day. Once in the early morning and again in the late evening, so there will be some food for the pleco, as there is not much algae or anything.
Please Help! The tank is just cloudy. I thought it was the filter, but have rinsed and cleaned what was in supplied with the kit, the filter is just a Top Fin 10 Power Filter, and a Top fin heater. I am not sure what i should do or why my tank is cloudy!
