Hello,


I have 10 gallon tank and filter inside water in it. I changed water yesterday. Water was very clear before changing it but as this is new setup I changed it. I used homemade vacuum to clean gravels. But after that, I can see water is not as clean as it was before water change. It's only been a week for all this setup. Is it because of filter cartridge? When this cartridge should be changed?

I actually don't know what they are .. but I can see a layer over water not that thick though. What to do about bacteria bloom?

Disturbing the gravel can stir up particles that cloud the water, but the filter will usually take that all out within a few hours.
