Ok, I set up my new 55 gallon on Sat. and I added my three smallish goldies on Sunday evening and have been using this stuff called Stablity that adds benefical bacteria and all that good stuff to the water and my water stayed crystal clear untill yesterday when it went all milky cloudy. I came home from work today and my tank is crystal clear again. What in the heck is going on? My ammonia is 0 as are my nitrates and my Ph is 7.2. so I am lost any ideas? :krazy:

That's pretty common in new tanks. It's a called a bacterial bloom. The bacteria that digest debris in the tank go a little nuts and reproduce too fast at first and cloud the water.

I just looked up the stability

It'll be interesting to see if it actually has an effect on cycling. I'll bet it won't. Do keep us posted on your water test readings.

So far I haven't seen any kind of a difference with Stablity vs. without it but my fish are pretty little so I'm thinking it might be a while be before it cycles out anyways but I'll surely keep y'all posted.
