NON-CLEAR WATER AND SICK FISH?  METHOD OF FEEDING!
     ONE OF THE TWO MOST COMMON MISTAKES THAT CAUSES 90% OF THE PROBLEMS WITH NON-CLEAR WATER AND SICK FISH IS OVER-FEEDING THE FILTER. .  FISH FLAKE FOOD THAT ( FLOATS) SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO BE "EATEN" BY THE OUTSIDE FILTER .  HOLD A FEW FLAKES JUST AN INCH BELOW THE WATER SURFACE FOR 3 TO 6 SECONDS (DO NOT CRUMBLE) UNTIL IT SINKS, THEN LET THE FISH EAT THAT SMALL AMOUNT AND ONLY IF THEY EAT THAT AMOUNT THEN SINK A FEW MORE FLAKES UNTIL THE FISH STOP EATING.  THAT WAY THE FISH EAT THE FOOD AND NOT LET THE FILTER EAT THE FOOD.  IF THE FILTER CARTRIDGE COLLECTS ANY UNEATEN FOOD THAT'S WHEN THE PROBLEM STARTS (CLOUDY WATER ) AND HIGHER NITRITE POISONING...SO THE CORRECT METHOD OF FEEDING IS VERY IMPORTANT.   

     THE SECOND (2) HIGHEST REASON FOR AQUARIUM PROBLEMS COMES FROM OVER-CLEANING THE FILTER.  EVERY THING THE WATER TOUCHES (GRAVEL, ORNAMENTS, GLASS) BECOMES PART OF THE GOOD-BACTERIA-FILTER-BEDDING.  THEN, IF VIRTUALLY EVERYTHING IN THE AQUARIUM IS "CLEANED" THEN THAT ACTION KILLS OUT A MAJOR PORTION OF THE GOOD-BACTERIA THAT WERE KEEPING THE WATER CLEAR AND THE FISH HEALTHY.  SO, JUST EXCHANGE WATER MONTHLY AND LEAVE THE SURFACES ALMOST TOTALLY ALONE.   *NOTE:  JUST ADDING WATER BACK FROM EVAPORATION DOES NOT COUNT AS A WATER EXCHANGE.  OLD TOXIC WATER HAS TO BE REMOVED!
