Don't touch it, wait for the cloud to go away. Cloudy water sometimes known is new tank syndrome is good. Mean you have a bacteria bloom (could also be loose dust). .25 amonia ppm is fine.

just tested the water. the water is cloudy but the ammonia is 0. does that mean the tank is cycled?
I am going to test it again tomorrow morning and do a 50% water change to see if I could clear up the cloudy water.

So I did a 90% water change yesterday morning. I noticed that it started getting cloudy again last night. This morning the water wasn't any cloudier but when I tested the water the nitrate was 0 but the ammonia was really high. It was at 8 ppm. My tank and my room smelled like ammonia
I emptied out the water and plants. Pulled all the osmocote I could find. Rinsed the substrate 3 times and then put back the plants refilled the tank. I tested the water again before I left for work. It was between 0.25-0.5ppm. I'm going test the water again when I get back from work.
Currently, I don't have any fish in the tank. Just plants. Do you think having the ammonia at 0.25-05ppm is ok? And if I do add a betta would the ammonia have be at 0 before I add him/her?

|kittenfish||That sounds about right. Remember to do a 50% water change each week, that's an important part of the EI dosing regimen.|

I'm doing dry ferts and it didn't come with directions other than excel.
I was searching on google and someone posted on another forum asking about ei dosing for a 7 gal
He was reccomended to do this:
10 tsp KNO3 mixed with 250 ml

|alecmerkel||No harm no foul. Just do. 75~90 water change and just let the tank reset for a week. Then restart you feeding schedule. I only dose once a week. I just read the amounts on the bottles. I recommend doing the same until you get more familiar. :) good luck. Can't wait to see your tank healthy again!|
