  1. Default Why is my water so cloudy?

    Hey everyone. I'm having a hard time with my tank all of a sudden being cloudy all the time. It's fully cycled, had plants now for about a month and a half.

    My penguin bio wheel filter makes a ton of bubbles and they all seem to hang in the water. That definitely adds to the cloudiness. Here's a comparison from the day I added plants, to now. Any ideas?

    I've cleaned the tank, did water changes, rinsed the filters in old tank water and it goes right back to it. All readings are where they should be

    Here's a picture of all of the bubbles. I thought plants helped clear the water, not make it ten times worse lol

    I have noticed when I do water changes that the Java Moss has a ton of dirt coming out of it. I put the vacuum over it and it's just almost white water looking coming from it. Do I maybe have it too thick and need to thin it out? Not sure if that'd make the whole tank cloudy or not

    Umm for java moss get some red cherry shrimp and they will eat all the bacteria and micro and macro organisms in there and they breed like rabbits so u could sell them for profit

    I don't see micro bubbles in any of the photos

    Your moss may be too thick as you have already stated

    What are your exact water parameters right now ? Did you complete a fishless cycle ? Did you ad any new fish lately ?
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
