Welcome! Cloudy isn't unusual for a recently set up tank. It's often a bacterial bloom. It will stabilize.

I have had this tank set up for over a year now and always issues with cloudiness.

Yeah I can't really see why that would affect cloudiness. What's your filtration?

And, I guess, what are your parameters, substrate, stock, and water change schedule?

We switched to sand a couple of months who, and the first few water changes made things very cloudy. I added quilting batting to the filter, which catches the sand.

I have this filter on this tank, it uses the carbon packs, the tank size is 46 gallons and has always had the sand in it. I do water changes only when it gets cloudy and I rinse the carbon pads like every 2 weeks.

What kind of water do you rinse the filter packs in?

Weekly partial water changes are very good for tank health.

Which critters do you have?
