OK , I admit it, I know nothing about sw
tanks........ I have a 210g sw
tank almost by accident. Don't get me wrong, I love it but am still truly baffled by a bit of stuff. I AM amazed at how much easier it IS as opposed to how it LOOKS on paper. Now . So far it is FOWLR
as I don't have lights yet. I run a pondmaster 2400 pump in a 50 gal
sump. The water was crystal clear for awhile. It's been set up for maybe 3 months now. I have 6 clowns in there and about 60 lbs of live rock. 1 turbo snail. My water is yellow looking so I added a protein skimmer, also with a pondmaster pump, and I do have bubbles all the way up it but there is nothing to clean out as yet and while the water is a little better color for $500.00 I expected it to clear a lot faster than this. It's been 24 hours so the tank should have re-circulated itself several times. Shouldn't it?
Was the protein skimmer what I needed to get rid of the yellow water or do I need something else?? You can see into the front of the tank ok but from the end it looks really yellow. Of course we are looking down a 7 ft length of water but it did look clear at first. I just tested everything right across the board and I don't even have so much as a hairs worth of difference in any readings and I do test them all that I know of. SO, why is the water still yellow?
