Floss and/or clarifiers won't help as what you have is a bacterial bloom because the tank is not cycled. Your fish are at risk of ammonia and nitrite poisoning until the tank is cycled. Test daily for both ammonia and nitrite and do a very large water change if either is above 0.25 ppm. This article explains what the nitrogen cycle is and why ideally tanks should be cycled before adding any fish: https://www.fishkeeping.co.uk/articles ... hless-cycling-article.htm This one explains in more detail what to do to keep your fish safe if you added them without cycling your tank first: https://www.fishkeeping.co.uk/articles ... ammonia-nitrite-spike.htm
