My aquarium got cloudy and I don't know why

I have a 20 gallon fishtank with three goldfish and one plecostamus. Everything's been great for over a year until yesterday. There was some water evaporation so I decided to add some plain tap water, a couple of gallons, maybe. I've done this before with no ill consequences. Then I discovered that I had some Aqua Plus left, and poured in about 1/2 cup. It's always worked fine both in this tank and in my pond outside. However, this morning (the "morning after") my tank is completely cloudy! The fish look okay but I just don't understand what's going on. The tap water was completely clear, and Aqua Plus is used to clear up cloudy tanks! What could be going on here?? the fish are still looking good but the cloudy tank looks horrible.

What was nibbling at my legs in the sea at Naples Beach this morning?

I was swimming at Naples Beach Florida this morning and a very persistent, long thin fish kept nibbling at my legs. It was 2-3 inches long, maybe 1/4 inch thick, & had bold black & white stripes. It seemed to want to attach to me in the same way shark lamprey do. What was it?

Identify Costa Rican delicacies

I was in Costa Rica a few years ago, and ate fish that appeared to be cooked but wasn't -- it was in some kind of juice that "cooks" the fish. What is this method of cooking called and how is it done? Also, I drank something that night that after a few hours made me feel a little nauseous and was accompanied by hallucinations (like rocks splitting open revealing water and snakes inside). Any idea what I could have drank? And where can I get more of it?

Koi carps in Chinese restaurants

Ever notice the fish tanks with koi carp near the entrance in many Chinese restaurants? A friend told me that they are actually there to indicate (perhaps through the number or type of fish?) whether the restaurant owner has paid up to the local Chinese mafia (triad). Is there any truth to this or is it just another urban legend?

Discrete nano-reef filtation and heating?

I want to set up a 3gal nano reef tank (possible slightly larger, up to 10gal). I want the system to be as aesthetically pleasing as possible, namely by keeping any equipment out of sight. Could I just drill two holes in the tank, and use a powerful external canister filter, to filter the water and provide water movement? Or is a seperate powerhead necessary? In addition, is there an external way of heating the water, without the use of a sump? Thanks a lot.
