cloudy water, strong smell
tank is a 29 gallon high, aquaclear 200 filter. (all 2-3") 3 red tail tinfoil barbs, jewel, jaguar, green terror. all acting normal... or normal for them, crazy fish!
Anyway, did my 20% water change yesterday, normal dose of aquasafe and salt, everything was normal when I woke up this morning. Replaced filter media earlier today, about an hour or so afterwards I noticed the water started to become cloudy, and a few hours afterwards I noticed the odor of the tank had gotten a bit stronger (can't normally smell it from my computer desk.) Now, I had dropped and broke the hood that fit on my tank, didn't want the barbs to jump out so I found an old screen lid and placed a 10 gallon hood on top of the screen for now. When the bubbles on the surface of the water pop, condensation builds up on the mesh and eventually drips back down into the tank. I'm not poisoning my fish with this mesh lid, am I?
