1st priory is to save the fish !! move them to a new container consisting of half old water and half new water (declorinated) along with a small air bubbler !! this should help your fish to recover (don't use soap to clean out container it is toxic to fish) moist table salt is best to use for a cleaning agent and rinse well b4 putting fish inside

then ck to see if your aquarium is pumping water thru the filter and falling back into tank ( replace all the water in the tank 1st with two rinses ) make needed repairs to pump and or filter assembly (New filter cartridge) new pump impellers and cartridges are available for purchase for your aquarium from vendors that sell aquariums and allways ck the outlet the pump is plugging in b4 blaming a pump fail with a known good table light set to "On" they do go off once and an a while
verify that water chemistry is ok b4 retuning fish to tank and observe fish for strange behavior for next several hours ( upside down swimming, laying sideways )

Aquarium water is cloudy


This can happen and will generally clear with time, if you are concerned do a water change. I find that this treatment is more hassle than its worth, if you have a suitable filter seachem denitrate is a good alternative, or he aquarium pure balls.

Do I need an aquarium chiller for tropical fish?


Tropical fish do not require cold water to survive; however the water temperature should never go above 30 degrees Celsius, or you could kill your fish.

Does an aquarium filled with goldfish need a filter?


Generally speaking, goldfish can survive in a fish bowl orsmall tank without a filter. However, ifyou have multiple goldfish in one tank, they would probably live longer andhealthier lives with a filter. Filtersare beneficial because they clean the water and keep it balanced. The fresher the water is, the healthier yourfish.b>

Why do salt water aquariums need heating and cooling units?


Most saltwater aquariums are generally used to housetropical fish. Tropical fish are fromthe Tropics (the area of the planet around the equator.) The water temperature varies in differentlatitudes and depths, but it tends to stay between 77-80F (about25-27C). Therefore, you want to houseyour fish in the environment that is most like the one they are accustomed to,if you want them to stay healthy. Therefore, maintaining aquarium temperature with heating and coolingunits is essential.

CLOUDY WATER


I too have this problem after treatment for algae, especially if I got a day or two without running the pump, it starts to get mildly green. After adding the algaecide, it kills the algae, but leaves what I call the white dead floating...it takes several days for this to phase out.

If you aren't already doing so, put 3" tablets in the pump basket housing, that helps dramatically. Put a pair of knee-high pantyhose (one inside the other), on the return inside the pool. (you will be amazed what it catches after a few days). Also you can try some "clarifier" to help clear up the cloudiness.

I'm no pool expert, but have dealt with the cloudiness myself. Through trial and error, have learned that cloudy water doesn't necessary mean dirty water. It will clear within a day or two if you are keeping stabilizer tablets in pump basket and using shock once a week. And run the pump for about 8-12 hours a day, it will clear up quicker. And to me, using the pantyhose is an extra-filter and it catches the 'gunk' that the sand in the filter isn't catching. (it can't possibly get everything). Be sure to backwash your pump frequently too.

Hope this helps at least some. Good luck!
