Question Fish water?

I just got two new gold fish to accompany the one we already have. In almost a week(6 days) of no problems the water now is turning cloudy for no reason I can see. The fish seem O.K., eating fine, swimming fine, acting very normal. Anyone know fish and of this problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cloudy water is usually an indication that the tank has gone into a cycle. While this is a necessary thing it can pose problems for the fish if the water parameters stray too far.

Was this a previously well established tank? What size? Do you have a water test kit available? The more information you can provide the better I will be able to help you out.

FWIW, it doesn't sound like you have any major problems.

If you haven't already done so, do a 20% water change. If possible, dechlorinate the new water by running an airstone in it for a day prior to adding it to the tank.
