Why Is My Fish Tank Water Cloudy?

There is some reason why tank water is cloudy. Not all types of cloudiness are bad for tanks.

After starting a new aquarium, it is not uncommon for the aquarium to become cloudy. This is due to beneficial, nitrogen-converting bacteria colonizing to oxidize ammonia and nitrites. 

Bacteria bloom can also occur in an established aquarium if there is a sudden increase in nutrients.

Brown Discoloration

If the driftwood was not presoaked prior to adding to the tank can cause a slight brown coloration to the aquarium. This coloration comes from the release tannic acid.

Green Discoloration

Green discoloration means there are too many algae in your aquarium. You should remove algae from your aquarium.
