    When you feed the flake and pellets how long does it take them to eat the food you put in ?

    I usually put a little in at a time so they can get it all before it sinks to the bottom.....I have a bunch of bottom feeders though so I dont know what the deal is.....

    This is a cichlid tank, correct ?

    What brand of food are you feeding ? That itself could very well be the problem.

    I'd also cut back to feeding once a day and fasting the tank once a week though.

    Cichlid Attack is known to cloud the water. I'm switch to a higher quality food like Hikari Bio Gold

    Try not feeding that and do a large water change. See how that goes for about a week.

    Just empty out about half the water in the tank and refill it with regular tap water?
