Hihi new to this forum and hobby . Can anyone advise? Iíve two gold fishes in a 60cm tank . Kept them for two months . After first few days of setup , the water turned whitish cloudy . Thinking it bacterial bloom I let it be but did slight water changes every 3-4 days . After a mth itís still cloudy but now itíd greenish cloudy . Itís not placed under strong sunlight too . Anyone can help ? Iíve bought those drops for promoting healthy n clear water n did a 50% water change too but nothing helps 😖Thank u !! ❤️
Whatís total volume of tank?
What filtration are u running?
If using pump driven, whatís the flow rate thru the filter or canister
What media are u using?

2. what are the plants inside
3. photo period

Oicic so algae is good to have lor

Sent from Xiaomi POCOPHONE F1 using GAGT
Do becareful if algae grow around your filter intake area it can reduce the water intake and affect the flow rate. And if algae grow on your plant, it will be harmful to your plants. Generally I dont like them in my tank.

Thank you.
I don't see anything wrong with your setup.
the only thing I can think of is your tank is still not mature yet.

how old is this tank setup?
the death started recently or right from the start?
what substrate your using?
any ADA (or equivalent) soil?
