Tank issue

My tank is now really cloudy i dont know what happened. I was doing the fishless cycle method on my 29 gal. tank and i took the shrimp out and then my tank turned really milky its been like this for about 2 days now.

My ammonia is at 2.5 (77 degrees)
My Nitrite is 2.0 ( 77 degrees)

does anyone know whats going on if its good or bad?

Just continue on with the cycle. How much LR do you have in the tank?

The LR should help once it cures and your tank cycles. The ammonia and nitrites are showing that your tank is cycling. It needs the LR in there to house the nitrifying bacteria that will break down the ammonia and nitrites.

I agree. The high content of ammonia can easlily cloud a tank up. Getting that LR in there will make a huge difference.
