ive had my tank set up for about 6 months now and it is always cloudy. i do about a 30% water change once a week vacuming the bottem out....ive tried proaquatics water clarifier, but that fails to work. im thinking its from the rocks i have (i got the from a quary behind my house)....i bleached and cooked them though for a week or so. does anyone have any ideas???

Your probably cleaning a bit to well. Anytime new "sterile" rocks are added it takes them a few days to get some bacteria growing on them.

How much filtration do you have?

From our chit chat in another thread I would venture to guess that you need more filtration for your bioload.
