New member here, help with cloudy tank
I've had this fish tank for a year or two now, and I really love it. Recently, Ive had this nasty cloud in my tank, and wanted to know how you guys would suggest i fix it. I do know my way around the fish tank hobby, so jargon and technical terms are fine help.
By the way, this is a few hours after a 40-50% water change.
Sorry for large pics, dont know how to resize on photobucket.
Side View, cant see through........
Welcome to the forum. I don't have advice as far as how to fix your problem but plenty of people here do. Is that a severum? It's a nice looking fish :-)
Any recent changes in water chemistry?
Any recent additions of new gravel, decor, fish, etc?
Is this cloudyness just in the tank itself, or can you see a film at the top?
Is it just kind of "regular cloudy" or is it milky?
Water parameters would be great as well.
Oh, how big is the tank? Looks like a 55/75 to me (or bigger), but not 100% sure.
no new additions to report.
there is no film at the top, just in the water.
it doesnt seem milky, just kinda white. you may be able to see in the picture, with the light off you can see through, although it is slightly cloudy. Once the light comes on, you cant see to the other side.
tank is a 75 gallon.
possible bacterial bloom due to a mini cycle?
PS: Hope youre not trying to make a career in photography :P
What foods did you use? What test kit are you using? Have you cleaned the filter media? How? What filter media do you have?
Tank doesn't look a year old to me but what do I know? I see no decorations of any kind were they removed recently? Filters replaced ? Gravel vaccumed regularly or replaced recently? What size filter and brand is being used to filter the water? Any aggressive cleaning of the tank lately? What chemicals or additives if any are being used including dechlorinator. Any medications and or salts added to the tank recently?Perhaps answers to these questions will allow others to offer some suggestions as to possible cause.
first picture, that bag of food ontop of the tank looks like sinking wafers. these will effect water quality.
