I have a 150 gal
reef thats been up for a couple of weeks,had tank for over a year just redid it .took out all the filters added about 300 lbs of LR
put in a 4 inch DSB
w/ SD and LS
tank never recycled w/ all the LR
.I use ro
water.and have been using oceans blend additives since resetting tank .salts at 1.023 cal. is at 375 ph is 7.9 - 8.1 nitrite - nirtate 0, alk
4.5.recently started to get haze of algae on glass brown on the front green on the sides ( clean the front more than the sides).since I couldn't get ph to 8.3 I used kents marine buffer to get it to 8.3 last nite .tested ph again today still right around 8.0 ,but water is kind of cloudy ,not real bad if you look at it straight on .but if you stand on one side and look at through to the other side it's bad . any thoughts on whats going on ?
