    The water in my tank seems to have gotten a little cloudy.. I tested the water and it all looked good now it seems cloudy.

    Good morning,

    :animal0068:I have moved your thread from Freshwater Beginners to Aquarium Water/Cloudy Aquarium Water section of the forum.

    What you are seeing could be a bacterial bloom and if this is the case, then it simply needs to run its course:

    Algae issues:

    Activated Carbon:
    If you aren't currently using it, I would add some to a mesh bag and place it in your filter. It may help, it may not. It really depends on the underlying cause of the cloud.

    Hello and not to hijack the thread, but that is an excellent article on bacterial blooms. Thank you Ken because I was JUST thinking I wanted to read up some more on bacteria!
