hi i have a 41gal tank. Lately it has become very dirty even though it has cycled and i am wondering about the filtration. I currently have two crystal clear 380 liters any help would be appreciated
Sorry didn't realize the crystal clears meant filters. Anyway is the water cloudy or a white haze? Have you tested your water parameters such as ph, ammonia and nitrite? How often are you doing water changes and how much?brodes7 said:The filters are 2 crystal clear 380 liters per hour. And i mean dirty by it is very discolored i cant see my fish when they swim to the back of the tank
If you haven't tested the water why are you adding ammo-lock? Adding chemicals in the tank should be a last resort until you figure out what's wrong.brodes7 said:the water is brown haze and i haven't tested the water parameters but i do add ammo-lock which detoxify that. I have been doing water changes weekly with about a 30% change.
Well its obvious something is up with your water. Did you cycle the tank completely before adding fish? And are you able to get your hands on a test kit to check your water parameters? And if fish are sick and dying I would suggest doing frequent water changes. Do you use a decholinator like Prime etc when doing water changes?brodes7 said:ok well it dosnt matter any more i woke last night to my fish jumping and splashing so i got up and they were lying on the bottom dying so i took them out and put them into a bucket.My favorite fish in there isnt a cichlid he is a 20cm silver perch and now he is sick :x
