Hi Everyone, Need a little help. I just updated my profile with everything that has changed. I also gave current readings of my water levels. So here is the problem, the tank is cloudy....it was a white milky but now it seems a little green to me. My tank has been neglected and I needed to clean everything. Last weekend I did about a 50 to 60% water change and vacuumed out through all of the gravel. I replaced the filters in the bio wheel and cleaned the whole unit as well, cleaned the glass as I was getting black spots all over(it gets a lot of sun in the morning), I conditioned the water when I put the new water in, pulled all the bad leaves off of the plants. I cant think of anything else that I did. My levels are all over the place and Im guessing because I did such a huge cleaning that I messed with the bacteria(huge mistake, I know) in the tank. I did another water change on it yesterday and I am planning another one for today after I finish with this post but Im not really sure what I should be doing. My Nitrate levels are really high, 20ppm. Also, I have a fluval 3 and a fluval 1 I think it is in there. I have unplugged them for right now and it seems like the water has cleared up a little but I cant be for sure. I think the little white pellets(thats the media right?) in the one fluval may need replacing but Im not sure. I believe they are about a year old. Im still so new to all of this its confusing reading all of the algae bloom, bacteria blooms....any help getting my tank back to where it needs to be would be greatly appreciated!! Oh and Im going to try and add a few photos so you can see first hand what I am dealing with. Thanks!!
