Help!!

I have a 75 gallon tank that I set up 2 weeks before Christmas. I have had cloudy water for 2 weeks now. I used filter media from another tank I have to start the cycle when I did set up. I have no fish in tank. I do not know whAt to do at this point. Do I let it be or change water? Someone plez help. I am now this week showing nitrates when testing. Although I use dip strips. I have been told they r trash but right now that's all I have.

What are ur other readings, if it's mostly just nitrates, your cycling is pretty much done. You might need more ammonia than wat u put in there as well.

How long are your lights running ?
Is your water green ?

Did you buy the tank new or used? I have a tank that the side glass never got cleaned and there is a haze now that won't come off. It makes the water look cloudy through the side but clear through the front.

It was used but when we first filled it was clear throughout.

Judging from the picture I'm assuming that it's not a salt water tank. Is it?
