DIY Co2 cloudy

Hey guys,

I have a DIY CO2 set up and the tube is right next to my intake. So I come home after running some errands, and the tank is all cloudy. Some how it sucked my yeast/sugar/water mixture into my tank. I would say about 2 cups full of the mixture. This has been set up for over a couple of months than all of a sudden my tank got hungry I guess.

I have done about 4 50% water changes and the water is still cloudy!!! All of my tests for ammonia/ ph ect come up fine and my fish are still healthy and swimming around. Should I be worried about anything, does anyone know how to get rid of the cloudiness?

That should help you out. Just keep up with the water changes and run an airstone until the cloudyness is gone.

I searched it but i guess i came up empty. Thanks for the info. I always have an airstone running, and I will just keep up with my water changes a little more often.
