[Killietalk] Cloudy water
You mentioned cloudy water "generally" isn't a good sign. Could there ever be
a case where it wouldn't be a bad or dangerous sign ? I know when I've not used
plants in the "cycling" process, or tap vs. rainwater, there's a big difference in wether
the water becomes cloudy or not. I would suppose in this case, where the cloudiness
usually [generally :-) ] subsides in a day or so, had this not happened then the
same results could happen - dead fish ?
I can't say as I've had a water problem while using some plant material in the
tank(s). I think this also explains our routines, once we find something that works,
we don't necessarily know why, but we don't screw with success either !
As the saying goes here, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". But it must be human nature
tho', as we seem to always see, "What seems to be working well, SOMEONE
decides "they" must change it."

Yeah, it looks like oxygen starvation to me. I'd do a water test. The other fish probably have lower oxygen demands or have adapted over a longer period. Cloudy water generally isn't a good sign.
