    Hello everyone. I'm currently in week five in fishless cycling. I started having cloudy water overnight. Is a bacterial bloom good at this point in my fishless cycle?

    Fishless cycles take up a lot of time so you may now just get a bacteria bloom. Make sure to test the water daily but if you cant, every 3-4 days.

    How are ammonia and nitrite doing? They will tell you whether or not you need to be worried.

    Week 5, you should be nearing the end of the cycle.
