    Hey guys

    I bought Seachem Clarity today to combat the cloudiness I've been experiencing when i did a total WC for my tank as I am planning to rescape. I was wondering how long did it take for the cloudiness to actually disappear for you if you are using Seachem Clarity.

    It usually took about a few hours to a day for it to disappear completely

    It didn't work on bacteria blooms for me.

    I see I see. Did you run your filter at the point of time?

    Yea of course. Clarity works by making those particles in the water clump together so they can be filtered out much more easily by the filter.

    Why are you using it anyway? Your tank is undergoing a bacteria bloom or..?

    Well I just did a total WC. I am using the ADA Amazonia substrate so that could have contributed to the cloudiness. I waiting for it to settle as I would like to do a planted tank.

    IME it takes between 4-6 hours for the water to clear. It is very effective, just be warned that the clumped fine particles may clog your filter.

    If it's been more than 6 hours and the tank is still cloudy, you probably need to increase your dosage. I believe the instructions state that it is safe to dose up to 3 times the recommended amount.

    Yea, imho it's safe to overdose as long as there isn't any fish inside

    You can start planting actually. The bacteria on the plants will proliferate and help in clumping up the particles. Next time fill up water more gently

    Its been like 14 hours and I realized there is still a slight haze to the tank. There's no fish and no plants so I added another capful. Could it be BB?

    This looks like how a normal tank should look like after being set up.

    Try doing your scape soon... it should help in clearing up the water lots. Seems like it's one of the Amazonia cloudiness I've been reading about again?

    Want to check whether is this product safe to use if there's invertebrates and fishes in the tank cos my planted tank seem to have small particles floating around.
