Re: [UniQuaria] Hazy/cloudy water
- Is it a fairly new tank? Cloudy water in a new tank is pretty much
guaranteed. It's a bacterial bloom & will clear up within 2-3 weeks
normally. Don't go adding any chemicals such as accuclear.

>Thanks, Tom, I appreciate the reply. I don't have all those kits
either, but will make the investment and do some testing. Will start
with 3 days of no light, and I hadn't thought about that issue at
all. My mom has a bad habit of turning the light on at 8 am and it
might be on until I get home 12 hours later. I hope it is something
this easy to fix.
- Thanks for the reply. Tank is not new. I have gotten a few fresh
ideas to try out without the use of any chemicals and am hoping to
see clear water soon.
