I cannot use the well water we have her so I'm using RO /Distilled water in my aquariums supplemented with Seachem Equilibrium and Bio Spira Freshwater Bacteria in my 20 gallon aquarium. I have two fantail goldfish, who have grown fast since I got them three months ago (they re @3" -without measuring the tail- right now). I had no problem with the water clarity until I added CaribSea gravel and Flora Spore. I have some plants in the tank. The water has been milky white translucent ever since. My ammonia level is normal and I do 2-3 gallon water changes twice per week. My power filter has a new filter in it and I've got a double sponge filter as a secondary.
I plan to get a 55 gallon tank in a month or two, seeing how fast theyre growing and knowing goldfish need big tanks. How do I get the water to be clear until then? Its been two long weeks. The fish act normal, its just frustrating that I can't get the water clear. I will be getting a bigger power filter, and have tried using water clarifies. Any thoughts?
