    Ok so I like super clean pristine clear water...which I had before I got Jabba the lawnmower fish. Naive me got him to add to the cleanup crew..haha jokes on me..I'm now more than ever the cleanup crew.

    It's a fairly new tank about a year old now. I've been going slow w fish I pick. (Bc they'll be around a while and) everything I wanted either wouldn't work together or aggressive.

    So my water is:
    Ph 8.2
    Nitrite 0
    Nitrate 2.0
    Temp 82
    55g
    Tank has
    3 damsel (my band of idiots)
    1 Jabba- the lawnmower fish
    5 nassarius snails

    So the problem is my water. Even after a 25% water change and using prestine..the tank has a yellow ting to it. I've attached a picture. If you look towards the back wall of tank you see it best. Of course Jabba and a damsel decided to present. Jabba is by the rock tryi g his bezt to blend is blimp belly in.

    Other than a new filter..any suggestions on getting my clear water back?

    from what i understand Pristine is for breaking down excess waste. to clear up the water try Purigen, it really works, my yellow/brown water was cleared up within a week of using it.

    Thank you. I'll pick some up today. That lawnmower fish is a character. It lets him keep his nice home. Otherwise he's really messy.
