Are they micro bubbles? They give the tank a cloudy appearance but when you look real close at the water you can see the bubbles, or do you have decent sized bubbles coming up? And where from?

Ok if they still floating around it must be either sand particles or dust. You could use charcoal or a fine filter to "polish" the water

Hmmm that's really strange, and it didn't settle after you had everything off?? I'm at aloss for what it could be, if it was sand or any dust particles, your filter media would pick it up and when eveything was off it wouldve settled....someone else may need to chime in.

How old is the charcoal? Was the salt mixed well enough to begin with?
