When you say "cloudy" how do you mean? What color is the cloudiness and how long had your tank been up and running? Also have you made any changes lately and/or cleaned anything?

a water clarifier, i use one and my water sparkles. many people look down upon water clarifiers though because it either dosnt work or makes the water smell.

nick i have a tank like that wont clear for anything but to help we need to know your parameters, your changing schedule, your feeding schedule theres a lot of things that can contribute to "cloudy water"

My parameters are good,changing water (30%) is done weekly,and feeding is once daily , consumed within 2min. I was wondering if I should add some (clear clouldy water )product from Wal-Mart??? :22:

accu-clear works for me, but I've never had cloudy water last for more then 5 days.
keeping live plants, driftwood and natural rocks may help with coudy water as the particles making it cloudy may settle on them (this is kinda out my @$$)

The only time I have ever ever had cloudy water is when I changed water conditioner. I went from Sera Aquatan to some other brand and everytime I did a water change the water became cloudy....I soon chucked the stuff and back to Aquatan...no affiliation
