HI everyone,

I am new and urgently need your hep. So I have decided to get musk turtles and have done all the necessary research for the right set up and to make sure I have done everything correctly. I have fully set up my tank and filled with water. I added a water conditioner to it to make tap water safe and also Fluval bacterial enhancer. Last night I have noticed that the water has gone really cloudy. I'm guessing because of the bacteria? I was meant to get my turtles yesterday but couldn't, so will be purchasing them on Sunday. Could you please please help me and advise me on what to do with this water and how to fix it?? Would it be safe to put my turtles in it on Sunday? Or would I have to change the water? Please help

Thank you

I would suggest doing water changes until the water clears up than adding the turtles.

Should I add the biological enhancer after I add the turtles?

Do you have a testing kit?

You can add more bacteria, but without a testing kit you'll be going at this blind with an uncycled tank. The cloudy water is *probably* harmless (bacterial blooms don't kill fish/other life) but if the bloom is due to the bacteria reacting to ammonia (maybe from your tap water?) that would be dangerous
