Starting Again

Hi all, I have been keeping tropical fish on and off for a number of years. I haven't used a site for discussing this hobby before, but I decided to, as I lost most of my lovely fish recently to cotton wool type disease. This time around I want to ensure no or little loss, as it was upsetting to lose the fish I had for quite some time and reared from babies.

Hello and welcome to the forum

Sorry to hear about your fish loss. I'm sure it''s hard to lose so many at the same time :(

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Water still cloudy

After my last post, my Tank is now cleaned out completely, new washed gravel, new washed accessories, water treated, heater in water pump on, part water change twice weekly, only fish in tank are two small grey loaches, and the water is still a tiny bit cloudy after 2 weeks- any advice anyone?
