Ok when you cycle a tank right now i am cycleing a 5g tank it has been going for 4 days now and it is very cloudy i have a filter going but it is still cloudy it also looks like there is stuff growing in it. It that what it is subose to do? Also when do i know it is ready
Cloudy water does happen when you cycle sometimes. I also had some wierd "growth" but just left it alone and it went away. You will know it's ready when you have 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites, and less then 20ppm nitrates. It is recomended that you check these with a liquid test kit, not the strips.
that i know but i didnt know that it would get all cloudy and things would grow but hey you learn something new every day right......lol i think next time befor i start something new dont listen to the people in the pet stores
