Re: Water help

It's looking darn good and clean to me.

Just in case, put some tank water into a white cup or dish and check the color.

Re: Water help

If it's green then it is algae bloom. I would still do a white cap test.

If you search on 'aquarium green water' you will get a good insight on the cause and cures.

The quickest way to clear it up is to use an UV sterilizer.
