Re: Cloudy water after tank setup :(
I would err on the side of caution and not add them yet.
#1 I dont trust quick fix chemicals for cycling tanks.
how ever I do use bacteria supplements.
is there any plant or ornaments , rocks ect ect in the tank.
if so I would remove them until it clears up.
use your nose does the water have a foul odor.
if so do a water change and add a pinch of food to start the cycle.
also a small sachet of gravel of another established tank will help
I just use a filter cartridge from one of my other tanks.
it worked great on my 46G
I had it completely cycled in 2 weeks.
