My 20gal planted tank looked great, with minimal algae on the glass, then inside of a couple of days the tank is totally cloudy with alage. The fish seem to do fine, though i can't really see them all that well
I've tried changing 25% of the water every couple of days and keeping the light off but it's not clearing up.
The ph is 6.8 the nitrates are zero.
I am weary of putting chemicals to treat this. Any suggestions?
Thanks

Do a search for "green water", you'll find many, many discussions on how to overcome green water outbreaks.
