Are you sure nothing has died in the tank? Are the anemones still closed this morning?

do you have any macro algae such as caulerpa that could have gone sexual?


As far as what to do...water changes and run some carbon.

You might want to do a bigger PWC as in 30-40 percent. What color is the cloudiness?
