Why is the water in my aquaponic system cloudy?

Cloudy water is usually caused by a bacteria bloom from overfeeding, overcrowding, or adding fish too quickly.  It is important to provide enough food without overfeeding the fish.  Most fish should be fed 2 – 3 times per day, only as much as they will eat in two minutes. Do one or two 30% water changes and reduce feeding amounts. — how-to-prevent-cloudy-water-in-an-aquarium
