How old is the setup? What type of substrate? What type of water?

It can be several things so each has a different remedy.
Algae bloom, bacterial bloom, undissolved salts or substrate settling.

SetUp is live sand, Filter is the Eclipse system it is all built in together I think he set up the tank to quick that is why it isn't working out his fish is doing fine. It's been setup over a month now. Water should be clear by now correct?
