    will this clear up????????????

    I cleaned and changed the filter in my 20 gallon tank.
    it's VERY cloudy.
    will this cycle out or is there a real poroblem?
    the tank was clear before this.
    anyone with info please post.
    please respond before my fish die!

    Yep, it should clear out and be fine. Anytime you mess with the filter (waterfall i bet?) it drops some junk in there. In a 20 gal tank it can get pretty cloudy. should be clear by the AM if the tank has enough circulation/filtration.

    add some bacterial supplement, maybe a clarifer, feed everyother day, brg a sample of h20 to a petsmart to get it tested. Sounds like maybe when u tossed the old filter you could have lost a large portion of you beneficial bacteria. Time is your best friend. Your fish look cheery and happy, but testing your water could tell you a better story

    Do you have a test kit for ammonia / nitrites / nitrates?
