The main tank has been cycled for over 3 months now. I live in a new development and I do notice the water does smell like they put a lot of chlorine in it, I use Big Al's Water Conditioner and use plenty for the amount of water I change, I have 10 mbunas in the tank of a couple different species. Yes, the water in this tank always turns milky white after a water change but the fishes didn't have any problems before in the last 3 months of weekly water change, and the cloudiness goes away in around 6-12 hours. I am using Aragonite as my substrate.
As for the quarentine tank, I just have water in a bucket left over night and add water conditioner to it, however the quarentine tank does not turn white, I just thought its from leaving the water overnight. Anyways, I've taken apart both my filters and they both have a funky smell, any recommendations? I don't want to the fishes in the hospital tank too long, I was thinking of just draining the tank, give it a good clean, change the substrate. But if there is a better way, I'd like to know it before doing this.
