    Tank Not As Clear

    Just looking for some thoughts as to what could cause my tank to be less crystal clear than it was a couple weeks ago. I haven't changed anything except I've started feeding my Pea Puffer live worms in small amounts. I tested the water and all parameters are great. CO2 is still the same. It's weird. Could the introduction of the worms be causing this?

    And I think that was the issue. 3 days (and a water change) after stopping feeding the worms, it's clear again.

    Just regular old red worms. I also trimmed back the tank but overgrowth isn't a cause I don't imagine. Maybe it's all a coincidence and it just want away?

    Maybe a bacterial bloom and the food source went away, the whole thing lived out it's life cycle and the tank is back to normal.
