Tank still cloudy after six weeks...
I set a new plant tank six weeks ago. I added fish and lots of stem plants within a few days of initial set up. I also used 3-4 inches of eco complete. The bio load has been light throughout my attempt to cycle this tank.
The water seems to have a constant bacteria bloom. It's not green, it's white/cloudy.
It's not terrible, but it's not like my other tanks that have crystal clear water. It's been over three weeks now of cloudy water. My only thought is that the heavy plant mass and water changes from the EI dosing method is slowing down the cycle process or causing the tank to cycle over again after each major water change.
