I was just comming in here to post virtually the same problem. My tank started getting cloudy a week ago. I did a 30% water change, and it is getting more and more hazy looking. What is going on here? All my readings are excellent, Ammonia 0, Nitrite 0, Nitrate 10, water is hard as that is what my fishes prefer, pH is 7.6. I have not added any more fish or plants (removed a few baby snails with water change). What could be causing this? I know there are products and filters out there to fix this, but I'd like to eliminate the cause if I can. Fish are still active and eating well. Any ideas???

Funny you mention it. Just this morning I awoke to find my 150 all sorts of cloudy. Everything reads fine but man it was almost murky. I did a water change that didn't really help much. Weird. I'm running a Rena Filstar xp3 and a Seaclone skimmer. It's a very young tank. 3 weeks old. I don't know what a mystery.

This 3 week old tank has been cycled? If not, it could be ammonia spike. Mine is still very hazy....What is up? SOMEBODY HEEEEELP!!!!!! This is NOT a new tank....it has been running for several months. It look terrible!

It is pretty well cycled, I tested the water and every thing was OK. It has cleared considerably today. And I have ammonia remover in the filter. Hmm probably my messy ol Oscar. lol
