my tank just bloomed a couple days ago for the first time, ive had the tank set up for two weeks, my fish and coral are doing well, i had my water tested first day of bloom and my lfs said everythng is alright
I agree with Doug. The reason that it is cloudy is that there is alot of ammonia in the tank. You should have cycled your tank first. I would check into returning the fish and corals till the cycle is done. You can read about the cycle in our SW articles section.
If you've been running the tank for only 2 weeks, there is a good chance you aren't even cycled yet. having corals and fish in the tank now is extremely dangerous.
The tank was used and has been cycled before, I used a live bacteria additive to help with the cycle, as far as I know all my levels are in check. I'm getting good growth and maturing quickly, as far as I know my tank is thriving.
You can do one of two things. You can return corals and fish or you`ll need to do daily PWC`s to keep lethal ammonia and nitrite levels down. It will slow the cycle down but it will eventually get done. Just cost more because of the PWC`s.
What do u have in the tank now? What corals and what fish? And do u have ur own test kit to check ur own stuff. I would get a test kit if u don't have one and check ammonia for sure. Cus yea I would guess it has not fully gone through yet and can cause problems if not kill the livestock u have in the tank right now.
