What could I be doing wrong?

My 2 gal tank with airstone seems to keep clouding up after 3 days! I haven't been touching the inside, or doing anything... it just seems to cloud up after 48 hours. It's really weird, today i'm going to let the air stone run... please give me some suggestions on this. :3

Tell us what you have in your tank and all the other vitals on it.

I think your having a bacterial bloom, which is the start of a cycle that cant really happen in that tank... hopefully more experts'll pitch in :D

Eep! How do I stop this from happening again? I bought a bigger tank to do LESS water changes, and more room for da fishie. D:

From what I've read, a cycle can be acheived in a 5 gallon with a filter, but anything smaller and you just get bacteria blooms. I think the solution is to do 100% water changes more often. This is just from what I've read, I could be wrong.

So the solution is to do more water changes? I wish there was another solution... :3

I think so, but I'm not an expert on small tanks and cycling and water changes >.< I'm really only chiming in because nobody else is, and its better to have some kind of idea of what to do. ;D
