Is your skimmer working well? I can imagine your skimmer getting crazy with all this cloudiness. Do you have filter sock in your sump's inlet?

Skimmer is working overtime. I have to empty collection cup every day. Instead of sock I got flat floss filter in my sump. It is DIY sump.

How does your macroalgae look? If it's transparent you have your culprit. If not... humm, we'll go from there.

Hmmm Chaeto looks good. For first few weeks it grew like crazy but now it's slow down.

Oh, it's cheato. That doesn't usually spawn like some macroalgae. Not the cause then. I've had other types of plants that would go sexual and cloud up the tank from time to time.

It may be snails spawning. If so it's harmless. Just do a water change and freshen up your carbon. In a day it should clear up if that's the case.

I don't have carbon there yet! I will put some in the morning and see how it goes.

This morning water was more cloudy. I didn't put carbon yet. Planning 50% PWC in the evening.
