sudden cloudy water?

I overnight my water in Finn's tank turned from its normal crystal clear to very very cloudy ... I have no idea what could have caused this. The good news is it doesn't seem to affect Finn

How long has your tank been running? If I remember correctly, big IF, you are in the process of cycling the tank? Are you adding any bacteria boosters? Cloudy water in a cycling tank is not uncommon & will typically clear up within a week or so.

Yeah I'd say its a normal bacterial bloom & should clear up within a week or so. 3 wks in is about when it typically happens, IME. Extra water changes sometimes helps.
