Water Cloudy
 
Hello,

I have my african cichlid tank setup and is all good. The water is slightly cloudy tho. Is this normal?

As the tank gets cycled more, and established the water should clear up. It is normal.

so when you say "cycled more" do you mean water changes?

Well, the murky water could be the result of many things. Since your tank is new, you could be having a bacteria bloom, and this is part of the cycling process. If you want some more information on cycling, it can be found here:

This murky water could also be suspended particles in the tank, and with proper filteration it should clear up over time. Hope it helps
