Dear Brother, Sisters.

I have been doing some read up on rearing gold fishes and now, i have a 1.5ft glass tank with 6 lion head gold fishes.

On the tank is a 2ft Dolphin Over-Head Filter where i place 2 pieces of sponge in it. One Green-White and the other black.

I feed them once a day in the evening.

But i face cloudy water after 2 days.

Can any Brothers or Sisters help me as to how i can keep the water clear.

Thank you in advance.

As CP always said...

Time need is 4-6 weeks. 50% Water Change (WC) once a week.

Another is your Over Head Filter (OHF), are they new ?
If Yes, then you also need to mature it by build bacteria.

How to wash your sponge to grow MORE bacteria ?
When you change water, use those water to rise your bacteria. Never use tap water. You will kill all the beneficial bacteria.
Just a shake, spin in the pain a bit and put back on the OHF.

Btw, 6 Goldfish (goldfish) might be overloaded.

2-3 goldfish in a 2feet tank.
Unless your goldfish are all stock level (2-3 inches), some believes the bigger the tank, the bigger your goldfish will grow, others said it's bloodline.
