I have a 35 gallon tank I am just starting up with one red eared slider. New tank, new filter, substrate(dry) from an old tank, rocks from previous tank. Everything was washed before putting it into the tank. I have white cloudy water, bacteria bloom from what I've read. I plan to do 50% pwc
for the next few days. My question is, will the cloudyness clear up as the benificial bacteria establish themselves in the new external filter? What else should I be looking at doing? No testing kit yet but it's on the way.
