New First Tank Problem, help!
So, I had a simple fish tank for years (the freaking goldfish didn't die for 15 some years), but has been empty a year, so decided to move it up to college with me.
Right now, I have cloudy water (white) with bubbles forming around the top edge, and black spots appearing on my plants.
Hardcore tank (10 gal) cleaning with viniger and cloth, multiple rinsings when done. Added gravel, again, multiple mixing and rinsing. Rinsed Aqueaon Quietflow filter holder, and filter, and heater. Let run a few hours. Added a pH corrector (Tetra Correct pH 7.0), Tap water conditioner (AquaSafePlus). Added 2 plants: cryptocoryne and Pygmy Chain Sword. Added Nutrafin Plant Gro (fertilizer). The conditioner and fertilizer were maybe 1.5 doses according to my tank size. Noticed a duck-weed (mini-lilly pad like things) like plant had came along for the ride on the plants I added, and I picked out what I could from the top.
Day 2: Evening, came home from school, water looked somewhat cloudy, some bubbles on front side of tank.
Day 3: (NOW) Cloudier, and more bubbles. Black spots on Cryptocoryne.
Planning to add some small fish in about a week, if I can fix whatever is going on here...
