Newbie seeking advice

Hello, can any one tell me if this is just the norm....Ive just changed my tank from a 125 to a 300. Is it normal for the water to still be slightly cloudy after 48hrs? Fish seem fine, water testing ok, or could it be just an effect from the lighting??.......

Welcome to AA!

I would say that is normal. You may consider running a canister filter with some filter floss in it to help remove the cloudiness.

Welcome to the site! I agree with Ziggy. Pretty normal. If you're in a rush, use some floss to polish the water.

yeh, my tank has been running for 2 weeks now and i see like small particles that dont look like bubbles, im guessing its dust... is this normal? is it safe? does it mean its time for a water change?
