I have a yellow bellied slider in a hundred gallon

Customer Question

Hi, I have a yellow bellied slider in a hundred gallon tank(60 gallons of water plus basking space). I have a fluval 4 plus in tank filter and a Flucal FX5 canister. This has kept her tank extremely clean up until just recently. I think it's sone kind of biological issue as the water smells horrible like ammonia and is completely cloudy within two days. Help please!
I also recently tried purigen which didn't work any better. No fish in the tank just her.
