I have been getting impatient with the tank! I am literally checking every hour to see if it is better or worse. There are 9 fishies waiting in a 10gallon quarantine just waiting for a new home.
The tank is 65 gallons with clay substrate covered with sand. The clay has not gone into the water column and the sand is washed. It is lightly planted with about 160 watts overhead. So far with the cloudiness, the light is not getting through all the way so algae is getting a hold. I do not know the ph, kh, or gh for my tank- just too lazy to buy a test kit for this.
For my 20 gallon tank, I have never even notice it cycle. I had 4 guppies, 2 dwarf gouramis, and a 3 fiddler crabs. It never did get cloudy during the first 2 months even though I overfed(it is REALLY hard to get food to crabs when the guppies eat it all!).
