Water cloudiness

Just wondering. Does the salt give off a white tint to the water? Looking at the front of my tank it looks pretty good... When you look thru the sides it's white...

Do you have power heads in there? Salt does not do that, in less there's to mush calcium. And to little magnesium or alkalinity Do you test ?
Or alge outbreak in the water column
Carbon works

I would run carbon if you wanted crystal clear water. That's dissolved organics.

Looks like you have very little flow in there. You also seen to be quite light on the live rock.

Ya. I'll have power heads on there by tomorrow . And the rest of my Rick is getting shipped today.. All levels are normal. Calcium is a lil high.. But I don't have enough corals to consume much.

Yeah. I have power heads on and active carbon in sump.. It's cleared up quite a bit. But still has a slight white and green haze when you look from the sides

You may want to invest in a reactor for that carbon. It will be 10 times as efficient then.
