 Hey  ppl....  Its  nice  catching  up  with  like  minded  ppl  elsewhere.....
 
 Anyways  let  me  get  to  the  point..  I  have  set  a  new  fresh  water  tank  on  8th  of  this  month  which  hosts  Gold  and  Carps.   Its  almost  15  plus  days  but  still  the  water  is  blurry  and  it  tends  to  form  froth(mild  though)  at  the  top  of  the  water  level.  The  main  concern  is.....the  Gold  fishes  have  become  sloppy  and  slow  and  they  r  always  @  the  top  area  of  the  tank.  Have  changed  the  water  once  with  cultured  water  which  i  had  in  da  cement  tank  and  then  am  treating  them  with  ANTI  ICH  too.   
 And  to  my  surprise  the  carps  seem  to  be  moving  fine.  Its  da  gold  alone  thats  hit...  They  dont  eat....  Dont  act  normal...  Have  around  26  gold  fishes  and  7  carps  in  this  4  x  2  tank...
 
 I  would  appreciate  any  help  given  here  to  get  da  water  crystal  clear  as  its  supposed  to  be  and  also  to  give  life  to  the  dying  gold  fishes...

 26  Goldies?!!!   Surprised  
 Thats  way  too  much!!!
 Reduce  your  bio  load  and  things  should  be  fine.  
 Also  tell  us  about  the  filtration  equipment  that  you  use.

 6  gold  fish  may  be  apt.  33  fishes  in  a  4ft  tanks  way  too  much.
 
 i  wish  more  people  read  and  research  before  taking  up  this  hobby,  It  will  save  the  suffering  and  death  of  so  many  fishes.
 
 My  advise  do  some  massive  water  changes  with  de-chlorinated  water  and  give  back  most  of  your  fishes  to  your  LFS.

 Shocked  
 wow  thats  more  like  8  people  staying  in  a  200x200Sq  Ft  room-  what  i  mean  is  that  its  real  packed.  Please  remove  some  of  your  fish  and  keep  around  10-12  only.

 The  filteration  is  adequate  but  with  so  many  pumps  the  water  flow  must  be  alot  and  golds  do  like  calm  waters  better.

 The  thumb  rule  of  inches  gallon  should  be  applied  considering  the  full  grown  size  of  the  fish  and  not  the  current  size.
 
 Seperating  the  gold  fish  was  a  good  move  but  It  could  have  been  better  if  you  moved  them  to  a  glass  tank.It  makes  easy  for  you  to  observe  them  .
 
 Not  much  clue  about  your  water  being  cloudy.
 Just  a  doubt,  Do  you  have  heavy  turbulence  in  the  water  because  of  so  many  pumps.  Could  that  be  the  reason  for  cloudiness?

 Cloudy  water  is  usually  bacterial  bloom  unless  its  turbidity  in  the  water  that  you  used.
 To  repeat  what  everyody  has  already  mentioned,  I  guess  you  have  too  many  fishes  in  there  and  your  tank  is  not  cycled  to  handle  the  load.
 
 Regular  water  changes  for  a  couple  of  weeks  should  resolve  the  issue  for  now  although  with  the  sort  of  load  it  has,  it  shouldn't  take  too  long  to  revert.
 
 Make  sure  your  pumps  output  is  diffused  and  does  not  create  a  high  current  in  the  tank.  Goldfish  do  not  like  current  in  the  water.
 
 
 Regards,
 Venkat
