Hi, am just wondering!! Iv just set a new tank up and the water is really cloudy! I have a 130ltr aqua one tank, filter in the hood one. All running. Am just wondering how long it will take to clear?!?! And is there anything i can do to help it along!! Please help?!?!?
I just want to add.. As I have a hood filter, the water doesn't move round a great deal, I have a large filter with power head in other tank and the water moves sooo quick. Do I need the water moving?? Lol
I would stop adding any chemicals to the water besides a dechlorinator when doing PWCs. The water will clear on it's own. Chemical additives never address the root cause of a problem - they just mask symptoms.
The link that was posted above is a good place to start- you need to understand the nitrogen cycle in your tank, and how that works. There is more to starting up a new tank than filling with water and letting the filter run for a day.
