Hi will...
welcome :)
.<..please don't post the same topic multiple times...>
You'll get replies, I swear :)...there are TONS of helpful posts and people here.
...you need to post some more details on your tank...water parameters, what fish are in the tank, how big..etc.
How long has the tank been set up? When was the last water change...and how much? Did you replace your filter media?

I appreciate the advice with posting something multiple times..
i'm new here so i didnt' kno
but reply if u have any info on how to clear my water up..

Thank you
Hi Will :)
29 gallons....8+ mbuna is kind of a lot of fish...in my opinion...depending on their size. ...I DEFINATELY think a bigger tank is in order ! :)
(by the way...your dempseys and africans usually require somewhat different water parameters...ph...)
What is your ph?...you did a water change 9 days ago...how much?...are you only siphoning some of the water or completely breaking down the tank & filter every time?
What filter are you running?
I'm going to post this reply in the forum also.
You can either pm me, or post in the thread you started.
