17 Gallon tank water has gone cloudy from a 2 year old putting food in
On Wednesday - so 6 days ago, possibly Thursday a 2 year old put a bit of potato, pea and like a tiny bit of dark like beef gravy into the tank to "feed the fishes", luckily the potato stayed whole and I netted it out right away and the 2 peas I just left since I know fish can eat peas anyway.
The water was fine the next day, I took the shell of the peas out in a net but the water looked the same, next day I think it was ok again maybe Saturday also still fine, Sunday it was cloudy though and yesterday it was still cloudy so I did a like 90% water change, I left only about 3 inches and filled it back up with fresh water and prime. It was a little cloudy again but it usually would be after that big a water change, when I got up today I expected it to be fine but it is still cloudy?
It has 5 Platy fry(2 months old), 9 neon tetras and 4 Albino Corys which are all fine and behaving normal and have been over the whole time.
Just wondering what could be happening and if it happened to anyone before?
