So I just purchased a 2.5 gallon tank with filter for my fish. I also added a heater just in case. When I woke up this morning everything was fine when I left for work but when I got home around 6 pm the water was cloudy. I’ve read I shouldn’t panic, but really should I? I use put a water conditioner so I added 20 drops since the bottle states 10 drops per gallon. Am I doing something wrong? I do have 3 live plants in the aquarium do you think it’s too much?

I'd wait for an expert, but my guess is you've got something called new tank syndrome if it's a white kinda dusty color. Sometimes happens when substrate isn't rinsed off enough in new tanks. It would help a lot of you could post a picture and fill out a form about your tank setup.
