KittenFishMom Posted February 26, 2022 Share Posted February 26, 2022 (edited) (I added photos at the bottom to compare normal water with cloudy water.) I filled my new cleaned 15 gallon tank with the cold cloudy well water, added Seachem Stability and new polishing filter media in a cleaned Marineland Internal Water Polishing Filter (high volume, I think 5ated for 75 or 100 gallons) and ran it all night. I still can not see through the water this morning. Note: We have a mechanical filter and a UV filter on the well. The water parms this morning are: Ammonia: a little under 0.5 ppm (using ACO test strips, have ordered API test kit) Nitrate: 0 Nitrite: 0 GH: 0 KH: 120 ppm pH: 8.0 temp 78 Can I use this water for water changes? If yes, at what percent of the tanks? Photos: Empty new tank after water polished for 14 hours: Betta tank after 2 water changes over a week: Tank where I have not done water changes: Edited February 26, 2022 by KittenFishMom added photos Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
