I am dealing with some very yucky water problems in my semi-newly established tank. We had a bacterial bloom (a bad one; we couldn’t see fish) that seems to have turned into an algae bloom. Water changes make the cloudiness better for one day and then seems to cause an even worse burst of cloudiness.
My current water conditions are below:
High end pH: 7.4
I have a 55 gallon tank that does sit in a fairly sunny area in my home (I was unaware of the effects of natural lighting when taking up this hobby). I have two angelfish, four neon tetras, and a blue-eyed albino Bristlenose pleco. I have driftwood in my tank for my pleco, but no other live plants.
I have considered trying a UV
sterilizer in my tank but am unsure of what that entails.
I am open to any advice on how to clear this nasty stuff up!!
