Hey guys , so I have four turtles. Two 4 month olds in a 50 gallon and two about 5 year olds in another tank. Recently i have to temporarily move the two babies in with my bugger ones because I had bacteria problem after I cleaned my filter and clears most of the water (see last post)
Well to make a longg story short my grandma over fed those turtles and now my water is a brown color and it stinks up the entire house. The filter is work fine so thats not the problem
My question is how to I get rid of the smell and color asap , because my mom is threatening to get rid of them because its makeing the house smell so bad.
I was just going to drain all the water , but I did that with my first tank and that cause a huge bacteria boom in my tank and its still not fully clear after like three weeks of waiting

I'd do the water change anyway. Do you have bio media in the filter? That would help it cycle much faster.
