We have fixed the problem and aren't going to use the Frog Bites again. The first time I put the food in there my hand slipped and I accidentally dumped too much in the tank.
After my fiancee cleaned the tank I asked if we should put some more in there for our froggies and he said it should be fine. So the second time I made sure to be careful with the pellet container and the recommended amount was all that I put in. It STILL clouded up, so I know that I did nothing wrong. The reason we even bought those pellets is because I read about them on this forum.
We did buy the pellets at a small LPS that has been in business for as long as I can remember. But in a five mile radius we have a Petco and PetSmart, as well as a Wal-Mart. Most people shop at those places these days, so we wondered if the food had been sitting on the shelf for so long that it went bad.
The bottom line is, those pellets are going in the trash!

Hahaha, that's a ridiculous overreaction! "Oh no, she should NEVER feed the fish EVER again, because her hand slipped and too many pellets fell in the tank!" I feed all seven of our tanks daily. The second time the tank got cloudy even though the correct amount was put in, so it clearly (pun intended
) wasn't my fault. So you have no reason to suggest that I shouldn't feed my pets. I'm disabled and can't work, so I'm the only person besides our ten month old son who is home all day.
