Water Clarifier

    Hi everyone!
    I am wondering if water clarifiers are ok to be used and if they interfere at all with cycle.
    I went through some problem with my tank (please refer to my other thread Prime and BB) and now I am finally almost re-cycled.
    My water is really cloudy. In the past, at the beginning of my aquarium career I did use aqueon water clarifier with excellent results. But that was before becoming an aquarium health conscious aquarist.
    Will really appreciate any feed back. Thanks

    If it were me, I wouldn't use any clarifiers. Your tank will clear up on it's own eventually. I would think you are experiencing a bacteria bloom. Here's a link explaining them:
