Some help with the water clarity

Post  Jc19 on Wed Apr 04, 2012 2:14 pm

Hey everyone!

I've had my tank set up for little under a month now. Just did a gravel cleaning and 20% water change the other day. And now my water isn't cloudy or green just not as clear as usual. I've noticed that my plants are starting to die and turn yellow I guess the led lights aren't strong enough. Any suggestions as to routines I should do to make sure my water gets back to clear and how to maintain that clarity. Thank you all for your help! I'm going to try and post a picture too to share!

Did you rinse the filter media in tank water?
These are only small sponges in these filters and will soon get very dirty as they polish the water.
You could also add a bit of filter floss to polish the water.
