Hi
For the last week now,ive been getting a whiteish foggy haze in my tanks water
Also ive noticed a different smell...kinda like the sea at low tide...or a marine tank smell
The fish are ok and the plants still growing,but somethings not right.
Could it a be a bacterial bloom and if so,how do i treat it
Did my 50% water change yesterday and by this morning,its hazy again

not sure.. make sure none of the culture from your DIY units has gone up the pipes.. any yeast in the tank could cause that.

orrr..

1) adding some trace mixes at the same time as PO4 can cause a white haze, Ive had this before but not noticed any odour tho.

2) make sure you clean out any mulm/dying vegitation on every water change.. as plant material rots down it can cause a sudden release of nutrients back into the water causing all sorts of problems

there are probably lots more possible causes, Im sure that others might fill in the missing ones if you cant identify with any of these.

good luck.
