Flourish Comp, Will It Make My Water Cloudy?
 
Hello all, I was wondering if Comprehensive has enough phosphate to make my water look greenish or not clear.

No. Not if dosed according to directions.

Having said that, I've no idea if this might occur due to some other conditions in the aquarium causing some sort of interaction with Flourish...can't say. I have never experienced any colouration after adding Flourish. It is brownish as a liquid but it dissipates into the aquarium water immediately.

It always makes my water look green, but thats because the plants grow so well all the reflected light in my tanks is green from the plants!

Just twigged into something here, Chris. If you have "green" looking water, I would assume it is an algae bloom. And that is due to light. The light is too intense and/or on too long.

And I'm assuming zof was being humourous.:lol:

It isn't green, just don't want it to become green.
