Do Maracyn I or II tend to cloud the water?? Never used this stuff before.
I woke up this morning to a tank that was so cloudy I could see it well before I turned the lights on from the other side of the room no less. The first night I used the meds the tank was clear the next morning. Last night was the second dose and I now have fog city.
I checked the params this morning and all was in normal bounds except the ammonia which was .25 so I did a 40% water change while of course running late for work. I was hoping the water change would help with the cloudiness but it was still fog city when I got home this evening.
When I changed the water this morning I noticed it had a very slight green-yellow color to it.
I know what caused the ammonia spike and totally expected it. I rinsed my sponge filter too thoroughly so I am going to have a cycle.
I had a family member going into town today so I had them pick up a Whisper filter, the kind that has the bio-bag filters that you put carbon into. I just finished setting that up and threw in a loaded filter to see if I can clear the fog. If successful and I get clear water by bed I will test params again and then make 3rd of meds if the params aren't too high.
Any other ideas?
