White cloudy water? Salinity?

I just check the salinity of my water and it is a little above 1.025. The Although I have a brown algae problem, I have never seen this before. Could the water be cloudy (white) because of the high salinity, or is there another solution to this problem, thanks in advance for any help..........

probobly not salinity unless you just dumped some salt into the tank.

Could your skimmer be leaking air bubbles into the tank? HTH

The only air bubbles that are present are from the powerhead located at the top of the tank. I did not add any salt into the tank at all. My angle fish has been picking at the skimmer air tube, but there are no bubbles present or can I see anything comming from it. The only recent change that I did was a 7 gallon water change extremyl fast, due to the fact that phos-ban had entered the tank through a strong water current going into the phos-reactor. I called the company and he said that it would not harm fish in the amount that I had. Anyway, the water was like this prior to the mishap. Is there anything else that may be going on?

1.025 is not high. It's the optimal salinity level cuz out there in the ocean, the salinity is 1.025 at most part. So it's not ur salinity that's causing the problem.

What are the other parameters? How long is ur light cycle?
