i woke up and my water is cloudy!!
Ok so i'v had my 10 gallon running for about 8 or 10 weeks i'v slowly added 4 tetras,2 albino corys,and a dwarf gourami. I did the whole fishless cycle. Anyway my tank has always been a tad cloudy,but this morning i woke up and turned my light on and its so white and cloudy i cant hardly see anything,I do frequent water changes and i vacuum my sand too. I have a Tetra Whisper PF10
*cry* I just want my tank to be all nice and clean and sparkly

Test all your parameters and see what your Ammonia, NO2 & 3 are, could cause this and peaking up you'd need to do a large water exchange (dep on how drastic it went up).
How are the fish looking/ acting?

My fish are fine,the ammonia is essentially at 0

Do you have any live plants in your tank?............Knowing your nitrites and nitrates could also help to dianose your cloudy water issues..............

no plants,i think its because i never rinsed my sand.i just got done taking the whole thing apart,rinsing the sand really well and putting it back together
It looks great now,lets hope it will stay that way
