    So my friend has 110 gallon freshwater tank and after a water change that he did today the water became really cloudy and had tons a lot of particles in the water. Tank has been running for 5 years.

    what could be the problem?? here are some pics...

    Did he stir up the gravel? If the water going in directly hit the gravel it could have kicked up a bunch - in which case in will settle, and could just use a decent gravel vac.

    Or another possibility, did your friend use a dechlorinator? If not cloudiness could be from a mini cycle...

    Thats all i could come up with

    If your friend typically did not do a lot of regular and larger (around 30 to 50%) water changes or clean the gravel on occation, I would guess it is a build up of crud in the substrate

    Do you know the current parameters ?
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
