I was just wondering. because of the NTS, I bought ammolock to get rid of ammonia. As long as the danger levels are down, but the water is cloudy, is this a problem???? Does cloudy water tee off the fish??

Also, when I put the water in on the first place, is it normal for a 20g long aquarium to look crystal clear in the front, but a bit cloudy from the side?? :smoke2: :smoke:

once the cycle is completed, a well maintiained tank's water will be crystal clear. fish don't care if the water is a little cloudy, but the cloudy water indicates that your tank's bacteria colony has yet to develop. give it time. cycling a tank takes weeks to months to complete.
