Came home from a week in FL, my Angelfish tank is cloudy. When I left I had 5, and now I have 4. My Mom was taking care of them, but she didn't know I had 5 so wasn't alarmed she was only feeding 4. After some digging I found the dead guy hidden under a plant in the back. The water is perfect, which I don't understand. Nitrates 5pmm, Ammonia 0, Nitrite 0 and PH 7.6. I have no idea when or why I lost a fish, and I have no idea why it appears cloudy now. Any ideas guys??? I've included a picture.

I'm sorry you lost one :( Poor little guy.

The cloudiness could be due to organic matter dissolving into the water from the dead angelfish (which wouldn't show up with the water tests), or could be an algae bloom or something. I honestly can't see any cloudiness in the picture you've posted though.

I'd do big daily w/cs until the cloudiness clears up. He may have been there a few days if your Mom didn't notice he'd gone missing.

Sorry for the loss Jen. If you call that cloudy, I would be most impressed with what you call clean! Dead fish, who knows why. Your water is good and you obviously take very good care of your tanks and fish. A dead fish will take water quality down, but easily fixed with the usual w/c.


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!

Thanks everyone, I did a water change and hopefully I won't loose anyone else. So weird, I have no idea. Sucks. My Mom tells me I clean my tanks too much, which I guess is possible but. I did a water change before I left for FL, I hope I didn't screw something up when I did it.

I dont' think you can keep water too clean, as long as you don't tinker with the filter and lose bb :)

I don't think this is your fault at all so try not to beat yourself up about it.
