Postby Seth1424 on Thu Mar 27, 2014 5:27 pm

Hi, im new here. I have a cloudy problem with my water and i dont know what to do with it. It has happened before, but it cleared it up on its own. And now the problem is back.
Anyone here know whats going on with my tank?

Could be bacteria, could be abiotic calcium precipitation, could be coral/mollusc spawning, could be you need new contact lenses. Hard to say without any information to go by.

Post specs of system, parameters, maintenance routines, livestock list and pics and I'll bet you'll get some useful ideas.

That's odd that you have cloudy water in a saltwater aquarium. Please tell me you are using reverse osmosis water and not tap water.
