Possible bacteria probelme


Makina Streuly:
Hello all,
   My mom has a 55 gl tank that is very cloudy (white cloudy). thinking it's a bacteria bloom. Tried using water clarifier and it hits the water and clouds really bad. I use clarifier in my tank and I have never seen it do this before. She has done a 45% water change, and it still acts the same. She has angelfish. Help please!!
 I have a video on my facebook, not sure if you will be able to see it or not.

Check your parameters. If any of them are off, it is possible that there is an excess of debris. I assume that your clarifier works by clumping debris, making it easier for the filter to trap them. Hope this helps!

It cleared up, but the water is still cloudy when i put clarifier in it. Really weird. Everything is where it should be.--meaning ph, phosphate, silicate, parameters. not sure. going to keep an eye on it. Fish are all doing okay
