Did I add too much dirt and gravel?
After setting up my aquarium and leaving it for a day, the water was completely cloudy white. I knew it was from a bacterial bloom, but after researching, some state that it was due to excess nutrients. Could I have added too much dirt and gravel contribute to cloudy water? The dirt was level at 1 1/2 inches then sloped up at around 2 inches. The ratio is the same with my gravel. So, is the problem nutrient excess or bacterial bloom? And will this lead to other problems?
