Re: [APD] bacterial clouding

Sounds like something has died in the tank?

Though I did get this kind of bloom when I put in too much of my home made 
food which had a lot of oatmeal in it.
A friend said that the oatmeal starch reacts with the water to make it 
cloudy and feeds the Infusoria so much the water turned milky.

I stopped feeding for a few days and the cloud disappeared within a few days 
and now I only use it once a week.

So reduce your fish food?
