i have looked for information on this in other threads, but cant find anything specifically related.
i have mr splashy in a 15 litre baby biorb tank - ceramic media at the bottom, two silk plants, an ornament and airpump / filter.
i put him in this tank abotu 4 weeks ago, and have been doing partial water changes.
the tank water has become very cloudy. i changed over 50% of the water on friday, and it didnt improve.
i chatted to a colleague that has a tropical aquarium and he said, that as far as he can remember about freshwater - that it goes through a 'cycle'... can anyone point me in the direction of some more reading material or give me advice.
i use a water ager / conditioner, and have purchased a gravel cleaner which i have not used yet (not arrived in the post).
there is some debris at the bottom - uneaten food etc which i have not been able to remove completely.. would this be the cause?
mr splashy is still very happy, and the water doesnt seem to be affecting him at all, however aesthetically it doesnt look that great.
