Cloudy water after DIY CO2
I changed my substrate (Flourite,) filter, added some driftwood and new plants on 1/20/10. All has been good until I started my own CO2. I bought a red sea bio turbo system. The included mix never bubbled.
After lots of reading here and elsewhere, I use 1/8 tsp of yeast + 1/2 cup sugar + 1/2 tsp of nonfat dry milk in a 1L bottle. I let it sit unopened for the first 12 hrs. It started bubbling nicely in almost 24 hours.
No problems for 4 days until I knocked the dang bottle over last night and it spit a truckload of bubbles and muck into my tank. Horribly cloudy water ever since. I changed 40% of the water today. It cleared a little bit for 10 minutes. It's a mess again.
I had my lights on for a few hours today.
What can I do?
