Cloudy Water

I have a 25 gallon tank holding 2 mollies,2 damselfish,2cardinal fish,1 clownfish,1 lawnmower blenny,and 1 hermit crab.I have had this tank set-up since my 45 gallon cracked.I used the same water and sand from the 45 gallon tank.Ever since,the water won't go clear.I have two filters in there now.1 Aqua-Tech 10-20 gallon filter and one of those corner filter and it still won't clear.Help me please

How long has the cloudiness lasted?
How soon after the swicth did it develop?
Is your filtration sufficient for a saltwater tank with that sort of bioload? Jeff

If it came from one tank to another and it is the sand, it should take about a day, if that, to settle down. At least thats what I expeirenced with mine.

Ack! You say you have them in a 25? What are the chances of you being able to invest in a new tank? Would you be able to do so with in a few weeks? Because I would say QT him in the tank you have them in. Chances are you're other fish might have it too, especially since clowns are usually the more hardy fish. I would say try hyposalinity...I had mine at 1.019. Also, you may ended up needing to use copper. But right off the bat if you haven't bought anything, I would reccomend cuprumine and Seachem multitest for copper, because it was reccomended to me. I remember I spent my last pennies once (and I mean pennies!) QTin' my clown and manderin, and I still have em today.
