Ok, so I have had to treat my goldies tank with ich meds (Interpet) as you know. I have just switched the lights on and the water is really cloudy and I have had a big outbreak of horrible black hairy algae too.

I am assuming that it is something to do with the meds, but do any of you know if this is normal and if so why it has happened? The second dose is due on the tank on Monday, although Patrick still remains spot free so he seems ok although a little quiet.

something like this (the sudden cloudiness) happened to me too and i found out that the filter's power cord had come loose... just check that and see if anything's blocking your filter

The filter seems to be working ok, but I am wondering if maybe the ich meds have killed off some of the bacteria maybe? I have checked the water and all is well, but I will keep an eye on that.
