I have 4 discus in a hospital tank. I am treating them with anti parasite and antibiotic medication. I am using Seachem neutral and discus buffers. When I do a water change the water is clear or nearly clear for about 12 hours. But by 24 hours the water is an amber colored cloudy color. I don't know what is causing this and if it is due to some interaction in the chemicals or medications. There is a heater, and two box filters with foam and fine filter pads in them running on the tank. I read that I should turn the heat up in the tank it is set at 92. The fish seem to be recovering but I am concerned about the cloudy water. Can someone help me.

Make sure you have read the directions and information for each of the meds to insure there is no warned about turning the water a different color. This way we can find the answer or rule out meds directly.

You don't need to set temp to 92F, only when you medicate with metronidazole.
What are the symptoms ?
Drop temp down to 84-86.
