Hi all, I have a 75 gallon tank with 6 boesmani rainbows, 6 sterbai cories, 2 blue rams and 1 bristlenose pleco.
I went away for a week and had a friend to look after the tank, just feeding and controlling the lights. I did a water change and I added 2 blue rams and the pleco the day I went away. Everything was good. Water was clear. I have a hog filter + 2 sponge filters.
I was a little anxious adding the fish in and leaving that night and trusting somebody else for a week to look after it.
I came home and my water is green. Dirty and can smell it as soon as I walked in through the door. I did a water change right away and another but still no results. I just changed the foam part to the aquaclear filter and rinsed the other parts with aquarium water.
How do I go back to crystal clear water?
And once the water is good im thinking of adding 4 more boesmani rainbow fish and looking for recommendations for a center piece.
All the fish I look at that I like canít go in my tank example frostosa is too big or too aggressive.
