T5, T8 or T12 ? What's tank size (gallons?)

Cut the light to 6hrs/day, do a 50% WC, it clarify water.

Ammonia, nitrites, nitrates, phosphates ??


If you put the tank water in a white bucket, is the water really green, or it's more grey ?

I suppose you have T8 lighting, 20w for 20g should be Ok. Did you forgot the light open for a complete day thoses last days ?

I would only do a 50%WC, and come back here again if it isn't solved...

I can't do 50% water change because I have fry in a breeding net at the top of the tank and no where else to put them

Fill a little buck with aquarium water, and put them here temporarly, then do your 50%WC, and put them back in the tank...
