    I'm still rather new with planted tanks and is curious why water will turn cloudy..

    Few days back i set up a simple 2ft tank. So here's what happened..

    1.Planted a layer of glosso..
    2.Placed a DW with narrow java.
    3.Layed a few pebbles netted with riccia.
    4.Released in 10 black neon, 5 SEAs, 5 Ottos
    5. Squirted 5 drops LUSHGro and Micros

    After 3 days, the water turned cloudy!!!! Why sia...
    Can someone recommend some remedy to treat cloudy water please..

    The remedy is...

    Waiting and patience.

    I'll take 1-2 weeks for enough bacterial colonies to build up in your filter media...and only these good guys could do the job.

    Vincent - AQ is for everyone, but not for 'u' and 'mi'.
    Why use punctuation? See what a difference it makes:

    A woman: without her, man is nothing.
