You might have a case of alage. It is easy to get rid of though. You can go and buy alage eating aquarium snails to eat the alage. Also, you can buy a (I believe they are called) magnetic scrub. It can clean alage off of your tank without getting your hands wet because it uses a magnet to manuver the rough pad while you are holding the other part of the pad. Choose an aquarium snail that's shell looks healthy(no cracks, or discoloring). Otocinclus fish, and coryadoras are helpful, too!
I would suggest you to change the water ASAP. Cloudy water indicates low oxygen levels.
No!!! Freshwater fish and Salt water fish are totally different!!! You can't put a saltwater fish in a freshwater fish aquarium and you can't put a freshwater fish in a saltwater fish aquarium. They won't live very long!!! They need different water and a different water temperature.
The water will become cloudy from pollutants Ex. fish waste, overfeeding or dead plant matter...to keep your water clear keep your filters clean!
Cloudy water usually takes care of itself. It is usually caused by a kind of algae that floats in the water. If the tank is in the sun, cover the window or move the tank. If you have lights on the aquarium, make the amount of time they are on each day shorter.
Shock treatment for the green part. If it is still cloudy you can add a clarifier sold at your local pool supply.
I have freshwater fish and i use aquarium salt. I put more in every time i do a water change
A cloudy aquarium usually clears itself over time. Cloudy water is most often caused by unicellular organisms (AKA algae or bacteria) floating in your water. If the tank is sitting in the sun, either cover the window or move the tank. If you have lights on the tank, reduce the amount of time they are on. If your filter is running properly, that will also help. Cloudy water is often a symptom of a newer (< 2 months old) aquarium, and will generally clear itself. However, cloudy water is also a sign that something is not right, and may indicate a toxic ammonia problem.
its obvious.... your fish are pot heads and have turned the aquarium into a water bong..... puffer fish im guessing
If a saltwater plant were placed in freshwater aquarium then the plant cells would burst. This is because the salt water would make the plant cell allow more water to come in.
Whether or not a tropical fish can survive in cloudy water depends on why the water is cloudy. If there has been a spike in ammonia or nitrates, it can be deadly to fish. Tropical species tend to be more sensitive to severe water changes than freshwater fish.
Whatever the organism is it will die a dreadfully painfull death.
1.water will leave the eggs
Nitrates can be reduced in two main ways in a freshwater aquarium. The first is the most simple; remove and replace aquarium water with fresh water. This dilutes and removes the nitrate. The second method is to use live plants to absorb the nitrates, but this is more difficult as you must then also care for aquatic plants.
They're designed for salt water, not fresh water! Just the way they are made. You can get aquarium salt from your local pet store, but don't put any in there if you have other freshwater fish that don't need it. Or get a tropical freshwater fish like mollies instead!
Yes, but be prepared for some cloudy water.
Depending on the type of fish, Freshwater or salt water. It also depends on the disease. I know that freshwater fish can have fungus on them. But I'm not sure about salt water.

Between 6.8 and 7.8 for a beginner soft freshwater aquarium. Between 7.5 - 8.5 for brackish type fish. See what your fish are generally accustomed to naturally and try to be within .8 +/- pH. pH is not as important as stable water conditions for most beginner to intermediate freshwater aquatic life.
depends on the FISH. if they saltwater fish, then you put salt water in the aquarium, same thing for the freshwater fish. if you dont know what kind of fish it is, look it up.
In most cases it is a tank/aquarium that has been constructed out of materials that could/would deteriorate if it was to contain salt water
Leave the water undisturbed for sometime. The impurities settle down to the bottom by a process called sedimentation.
They will die if left in freshwater, their cells will burst. Water follows solute
well freshwater fish are molly or guppie's they are the best water fish yet freshwater fish dont necessarily live in an aquarium like the above answers freshwater would be live rivers and streams and lakes in those you can find trout, bass, stripped bass, black bass and im sure hundreds of other ones besides aquarium fish kawidirtrider
The difference is the salt concentration in the water. Fresh water aquariums mimic the environment of lakes, ponds, or rivers. However, salt water aquariums have water that is salty like oceans. Fish are either freshwater or saltwater. Do not put them in the wrong water, or they will die.
Marine flying fish are too large for home aquariums. In freshwater aquariums you can keep hatchetfish and African butterfly fish. These fish can jump out of the water and require a lid for their aquarium.
