    hi everyone, i havnt posted up here for a while now been busy but i got a ned tank now, sold my 6 footer for a juwel vision 450, so im happy over christmas

    got a small question, my water has gone cloudy for some unknown reason. what is the best way to resolve this i.e some additive, or is there something i can put into my canister filter (fulval FX5)
    its more like a milky colour cloud if that helps,

    thanks lee

    Was the tank fully cycled / the seeded media sufficient? It sounds like it could be a bacteria bloom (?).

    If that's not what it is and you haven't already done so, some carbon will probably polish the water.

    Good luck and congrats on the new tank!

    I bet (and hope) that will fix it for you. One of our tanks will get a little "milky - cloudy" looking but clear up fast when I run some carbon in it

  5. Cool Good Call!

    Good call Jill!

    I would also ask if you have tested the water lately...

    Good luck!
