Winstons_estate Posted January 5 Share Posted January 5 Recently My wife and I set up a new aquarium. We got home from work yesterday and had the cloudy water thats of course sympematic of a new tank and that got me thinking, what is the cause of this? I know accepted internet wisdom on this is that its a 'bacteria bloom' but Ive never seen an actual study or solid info on this and it all seems a bit 'pseudo sciency' to me. I question this accepted wisdom even more because nitrifying bacteria does not thrive free floating in the water column, but on surfaces. (or at least that is my understanding). So what is the cloudy water really? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
