Is this looks like green water cloudy problem?

Need advise on water cloudy problem.

The water is 3 weeks old but the the Matrix is over a year old. I am wondering the problem is from theCaribsea sunset gold because I think I didnt rinse them thoroughly but I am not sure. The water did clear up in the second week but it went back to cloudy after I added two more amgelfish.

IDK what your problem is, but angelfish like(by that I mean need)planted tanks. What size tank? What filter is that? Gorgeous tank. It will look nicer and fish will be happier if it is planted though. I think amazon swords in the back with perhaps some java moss in the front would look nice. Maybe some green Cabomba mixed with the amazon swords?

It is a 30g long and the filter is a ac 70 with one liter of Matrix. Should I add one more hob filter? Will upgrade to a 50g later

Your filtration is fine. With surface skimmer your circulation is fine. Looks more like bacterial cloud to me. Put some filter floss in aquaclear and see if it clears up in a few days.

What are your ammonia and nitrates reading? You would be well advised to go ahead as stated above to get some plants in there. Some floating frogbit would be my choice at current stage of your tank.

Grab some acurel if its a cloudy problem. This stuff clears up a tank in minutes! If its bacteria bloom uv light does wonders...but those are pricy.

Dip water into a white container. GW looks cloudy at the start. Bacterial bloom smells bad too.

As well as frogbit or other official floaters consider hornwort or pennywort. You can anchor the stems so you don't get dizzy watching them spin around.

Is the tank cycled according to water testing? Check ammonia and nitrite and do water changes daily to keep them down until the filter is doing its job.
