Six days ago I migrated from a 60g hex to a standard 75g tank. Today I awoke to find my water had suddenly become very cloudy. Not so bad that I can't see the fish or the back of the tank, but a very noticable haze in the water. When I had the 60g tank I never saw this. What I am reading makes me think this is a bacteria bloom. Last night I added a plankton supplement for the yellow polyps that I have. Could this have done it? It said use 1 drop to 50g of water. I used two for my 75g (hard to measure half a drop).
One other thing I have done since moving tanks. On the old tank I always ran a magnum 350 canister with carbon along with a skimmer and two powerheads. That seemed to give me plenty of circulation in the tank. While setting up the new tank, I read more about canisters being nitrate factories and decided to leave it off, only using the 50 lbs of LR
(which was in the old tank as well) as a biological filter, along with the powerheads and skimmer. Is this a good idea, bad idea or what?
