Dusty Particles?

DaveyboyManc

Does anybody know what this is???

I'm 10 days into a TSS cycle & seeing as my ammonia levels are fine, I've had no need to do any emergency water changes. Tetra reccomend not to do a water change until the cycle is complete, but this dusty looking stuff in my water is really bugging me. Would doing a good gravel vacuum be bad for the unfinished cycle? Its not really affected the water clarity, but it looks unsightly. Any help would be appreciated

Could just be setting dirt and bacteria because the tank is cycling. Just leave it it should go away on its own. If not I'm not sure what it would be.

What kind of substrate/plants do you have?

Silk plants & unipac black micro gravel

So probably just some stuff settling.

I know it might be annoying but resist the urge to vacuum or anything.

Just wait a few days and see if it goes away.

Hello DaveyboyManc,
This is normal (I have it in my tank also), it should clear up soon and it is not harmful to fish.

The gravel's been in there for over a month now. I was doing a fishless cycle for a few weeks before I did a 100% water change & started the TSS cycle.

Ok. Thanks for that. Its reassuring that it won't affect the fish
