    Hi there!

    I am new to fish keeping and have a 75 gal tank with 4 koi that I just cannot seem to get right. The water is very cloudy after repeated water changes. I have even removed all gravel decorations in an attempt to get the water to clear up, but no luck. I also noticed today that it appears that 2 of the koi have lost some scales. Any ideas on what could be going on?

    As per my experience, I think this is mainly happening due to bacterial bloom. If you have a new aquarium then Goes through the initial break-in cycle,it is not unusual for the water to become cloudy or at least a little hazy.
