This. Is. Getting. Annoying.

I'm having a bacterial bloom in my 2 gallon... I've been doing water changes every 2 days for a week... how do I stop this?! I just did a water change last night and my water is already getting progressively cloudy again... HELP! If you need any info please ask. :(

You do have a filter right and if this is a bacterial bloom then it should have gone away by now. I had a bacterial bloom in my 2.5 gallon but it went away completely after about 2 days after it started.

Try removing the airstone and make a 50% water only change tonight and see if that helps....

What kind of substrate?

They are round glass pebbles/stones that are fairly flat.
