HI everyone,

Well, after four months of cycling my aquarium is finally ready. My local pet store did a water sample check for me and said everything is good. However, the water does not look clear to me. Is this a common problem? And can I begin to add fish? Thanks.

Pat

Also, what kind of light and substrate are you using in the tank?

I have a 46- gallon bowfront tank that a friend sold me. I cycled using just carbon filters and a bioscrubber.

Hi,

Thanks for the welcome. I'm using just gravel and a MarineGlo 30 watt bulb that I believe is best for saltwater tanks? My tank is a freshwater.

What are your water parameters? Do you have a test kit to check?

I have an API test kit. The water looks more milky cloudy to me. Hard to tell.
