cloudy water

  1. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello all, This is my first betta, my boyfriend is in the Navy and we decided that a fish would be something that would be easy for me to take care of while he is away. We decided to name him Iiro. We have had Iiro for less than a week. Iiro is a Double Fin Male, when we bought him, he had...

    Hi all! This morning I noticed that my new tank - a 1 gallon tetra hexagonal one with colored LEDs, is a bit cloudy. Considering the tank is only two days old, it seems weird to think it is dirty already. I could have tried to take a picture, but it wouldn't show up. It is just cloudy...

    I have two bettas, one male (Vlad) one female (Zapdos). They are in separate tanks. Hers is 2 gallons, his is 5. They get a mix of betta pellets and brine shrimp. Two days ago I got heaters for them and I have turned the heat up to 78 for both of them. I realise now two days is WAY to quick to...

    I've been searching for answers for hours, so I'm sorry if I've overlooked where the answer to my problem may already be answered. I brought a male betta home a few months ago and he's been thriving with no issues. yesterday, I added a heater, though I didn't turn it on yet, the temp is still...

    So I've been trying to do a fishless cycle in my 5 gallon tank for 2 weeks now using raw shrimp. There's 3 medium size shrimp in there total. I've added nothing else to the water. My problem is that for the entire two weeks my ammonia level hasn't even hit 1ppm until JUST TODAY. I HAVE been...

    Will a moss ball make the water cloudy? I bought a moss ball for Fishie's tank (5 gal.) and one for Shiny's tank (2.5 gal.), and the water in Shiny's tank has been a bit cloudy even after I did a 50% water change. The moss ball is my only guess of what's making it cloudy. Fishie's tank isn't...

    So, I started cycling my 10 gallon tank 2 days ago. I'm doing a fishless cycle. I added some of my dad's gravel to the filter, i've put bacteria supplement in the water, and i'm put gold fish food in everyday. The water is really cloudy. Is this a bacterial bloom? I've never cycled a tank...

    I sanitized my acrylic tank last week, and I've set it up for one of my bettas who's in a smaller tank. My fish is still in his old tank. The water was fine for about a day, but then it got cloudy. That was two days ago, and the cloudiness still hasn't gone away. Any idea what this is? Is...

    Hi, I'm new to this site...so, hi! I rescued a betta fish from the front desk in my dorm. I put it in a 1.5 gallon tank, filter, heater, I feed it daily (blood worms every other day) and I love it! I have one of those whisper filters (it came with the tank) and I came into my room and the filter...

    My betta fish's water has become cloudy all of a sudden! I have no idea as to how it became so cloudy. My other fish (:cry: who died) have never had as many problems as this one has. I am so stressed (almost as stressed as I imagine my fish, Jimmy is) because he's been having so many problems! I...
