Re:Cloudy Water


Pete, Thanx for the response, very helpful. Could you clear up some confusion please.
I am using the B-Ionic 1&2 Calcium buffers system. Their directions say to maintain alkalinity btwn 3.0 and 3.75 meq/L (8.4 and 10.5dKH) Your post says KH@7 and alkalinity 2.40 to 3.0 . Should I be aiming at an alkalinity of 3.0 (8.4 KH)? I did a 10% water change today and the alkalinity wasdown to 3.4 meq/L (9.6 KH) Also is it advisable to change change the prefilter daily as the tank clears up. It was a little better this am but has developed some green hue to the cloudiness. I turned the bright light off and am running a 96 watt compact actinic light as of now. The temp has been dropped to 79 and dropping. How often do you recommend the PWC to help with this problem?

The ponies are happy and all are eating well.

Thanx again.
