I think the cloudiness is a bacterial bloom.

New update. I have been having algae issues. I started a thread about it earlier. I have also been losing my rummy-nose tetras one by one over the past few weeks. I started of with 6 and one died while he was being acclimated. And then 2 died off for some unknown reason. I am now missing to be I suspect they are also dead. I have also lost a couple neon tetras. I still have all of my original black neon tetras though. I will try to get a picture up of the tank before I move at the end of this month. Then I will be re-setting up the tank!

Wow Zefick!!! Much better than my first planted tanks that I did! Really good job on that carpet, too! Took me several tries before I had a successful carpet. About to head over to your other thread and check that out!

Nice!!

Thanks! I did try to have a carpet one other time in a tank with a few AGA T8 light strips over the tank, diy co2, playsand, and no ferts. As you can imagine it did not do to well.

This HC has been through a lot. It has been attacked by algae and has survived green water and a bacterial bloom. During which I stopped dosing being worried it would help fuel the GW and BB all to figure out I was just starving my plants. But they have come back.

Update pics after move!

I was able to move the entire tank with a 1/4 of the water still in the tank. So basically the tank looks the same here at my new place! No replanting required just filled it back up and turned it on.
