Welcome to AA!

Clean water is very nearly always the answer. Increase your water changes to keep ammonia and/or nitrite under .25, re-examine the amount of food going in, and be dilligent for a couple weeks. You can also shorten that time span most likely by adding cycled media (gunky filter media) from an established tank. Then you'll be able to really enjoy your new aquarium!

We love pics around here.
