    Dosed Iron and Tank Turned Cloudy

    Morning all, I noticed some signs of iron deficiency in some of the plants in my 200 gallon, so I ordered an iron supplement (Easy Life Ferro - I use their ferts without issue). It's phosphate and nitrate free. I added just under the recommended amount and within a couple of minutes the water...

    What is wrong with my water?

    This is the trail I made in the water with my feeding spoon. The top of the water is cloudy and I can make a trail in it. Any ideas of what is going on in my tank?

    Cloudy Tank

    My tank is rather cloudy, an off-white cloud to be specific. It is a 45-gallon tank with a Tetra Whisper 60 IQ. The readings are just as they should be, straight 0s and a PH of 7.4 at 80 degrees. I am using rocks and driftwood I found at a local park. Could it be those releasing something? Could...

    What kind of bloom is this?

    Could it be a bacteria bloom / algae bloom? How can I tell the difference? This is in a 10 gallon tank. Not sure if this is a result of a water change (I do 15% every week) and a few weeks ago I had to replace the filter cartridge. Is that the reason why there is a bloom in the first place...

    This Cloudy Water Is Driving Me Insane.

    36 Gallon bowfront with 9 fish.   I've been having cloudy water issues off and on for a month now. Ever since I planted my dwarf grass plugs I haven't excessively vacuumed the substrate so that's not the cause. The filter is clean, I don't overfeed my fish, I refuse to try water clarifier.    I...

    Slightly Cloudy Water? Should I Worry?

    I returned from a trip to the petstore after work as I had my eye on one of their new adult angelfish in stock. After returning home with my new angelfish I noticed my tank has a slight cloudiness about it. I can still see the fish and plants clear enough but it looks like I dropped a few...

It was going good until 2 days later I put in a water heater, and about 24 hours later the water gradually became cloudier and cloudier.
