Cloudy Water

Hello. I'm hoping someone can help. The water in my tank is very cloudy, I don't know why. All my levels are fine, Salinity, Ammonia, Nitrates and PH are normal. I don't think that I've overfed. I have a 40 gallon with liverock. 1 clown fish and 3 damsels. Please help.

I must also add that about 6 days ago I did a 50% water change, the new water was properly aerated, temp was same as main tank, fish were fine after change.

I had a similar problem with IO salt. I thought it was that, and tried Tropic Marin salt..Had the same result. Then found out it was the water source. I use RO water and the machine I was getting water from, I believe was not filtering very good... I have since gone to another, and the mixed water stays clear... I don't know if this helps or not, JME....

You could use a Diatom filter to polish the water..it will catch even the smallest particles...

Is the water white cloudy or green cloudy?

It's definitely white cloudy and getting worse by the minute.

Send a message via MSN to pufferman
wait at least two weeks for it to clean up. Mine took about that much time to clear up

How old is your tank. I use normal tap water. I condition it first and then add salt. I also add a airstone to the bucket of water, and leave it there overnight. I'm not usually worried about temp as the water in the bucket is pretty much the same temp as the water in the tank. It's summer. AC is always blasting. I don't have cloudy water at all. Atleast I don't think so. Anyway, the only way I get slightly cloudy water is when I do gravel vac.
