Cloudy tank

I've worked up this morning and my tank is cloudy. Today is water change day and when moving my turbo snail, I lifted it up and there are 2 smaller snails underneath it. It appears to have given birth! I've only had it a few days. My corals look huge today. Is it likely the cloudiness is due to breeding snails?

If it was, they wouldn't grow so fast. It is either the corals doing it or a bacterial bloom. More likely a bacterial bloom. I'd run carbon to clear it up.

I've just changed out the carbon. I now have two extra snails which is nice

It's bacteria, It will clear up on its on, If it doesn't then do a 25% water change to replenish water conditions. Are you running a protein skimmer?
