I have had my tank going for about 4 months now, and have a few water problems.
I did not realize you had to cycle the tank and I just filled it and added fish
Well I did lose some but not all.
I got all the right stuff to get it right ( or so I think) the chemical levels all seem to balance right now.
But now ( and I dont know if this is the same kind of problem) my water is cloudy and my filter gets very dirty in only 3 days.
My water was crystal clear on Sunday, I did a water change and cleaned it all out, now by last night it was already getting cloudy. I removed the filter today and put in a new one. The filter I took out was very dirty, why would that be? The water was very clear and now looks just dirty not green just dirty (brown). Any idea's as to why or how to fix it would be most welcome!
