Bacterial Bloom or substrate dust?
Hello all, I recently purchased a 75 gallon tank for a freshwater planted natural scape. I have a Fluval 406 and a planted plus CC 48, I bought seachem Flourite and rinsed it very thoroughly. The tank has been up and running for about a week now and I cant seem to kick this white cloudy haze that it has. I have done water changes which seem to help momentarily but the cloudy haze doesnt go away completely. I understand that this could be a bacterial bloom due to the new tank and that water changes might not be the right thing to do but the Seachem Flourite substrate was SO dusty that I cant help but think that it may be residual dust from that. How do I tell the difference between a bacteria bloom and substrate dust? Please and thank you
