Water quality vs plant

Recommended Posts

I have a problem with my water, I think 🤔 my water comes out of the tap with a ph of 8.4. My water frequently goes cloudy, and my nitrates and ammonia are always climbing up. About 6 weeks ago I added pothos clippings to my hang on back filters to see if it would help. The leaves of the pothos are now yellow and dying off. Any ideas?

Hi @Aspenleaf, how long has the aquarium been set up for? Is there any fish in there? How large is the aquarium? What do you do for aquarium maintenance? Do you have any pictures? 

Given the limited information you provided, it sounds like your aquarium is still cycling and the cloudiness is a bacteria bloom. 

I am not sure about the pothos however, is there any new growth?
