I've decided to condition the water and leave it to stand for a few hours before doing a change over just to be safe. its taken ages to get the tank to successfully cycle and be ready for anything to survive in it so dont want to have to start again if it some how went wrong.
A question i have to ask though is regarding water again but more about how to keep it clear. I have about 4 different species of plants in my tank at the moment and only 4 cherry shrimp for everyday cleaning of algie. But i dont think my filter can handle it as the water is starting to cloud up and look dirty quicker every time i change the water. Any idea what would cause this?
