i bought a 20 gallon tank about a week ago. I have put the gravel and filter in it and it's working fine. But I just realized it seems kinda cloudy¿ haven't put any fish in it.
Any idea why that is and what could I do?

Good morning,

Please complete your Aquarium Profile Information. This Information will aid others with their responses. To access the Profile, click on Forum Actions in the bar close to the top of the screen. In the drop down box, click on Edit Profile. Be sure to hit SAVE when you are done.

Perhaps you didn't rinse the gravel well enough and in this case, give it time, it will filter out and or settle.

Are you using Activated Carbon in the filter? If not, I suggest that you do.

Ken

It's likely just a bacterial bloom. It's very common in new tanks. It'll go away on its own.

Depending on the type of substrate used, you may experience some cloudiness. It will clear itself up as long as you are running your filter.
