Cloudy Water...still cant figure out why?

I have a power filter and a seaclone protein skimmer producing very well, my tank has been up for 2 months now...i did have some slug like creatures reproduce all over my glass and theyre everywhere...all parameters are good any any ideas what it could be...I have 2 maroon clowns, rose anemone, polyops, leathers, xenia's? Oh and the water only looks cloudy when the lights are on and i tried chemi-pure in my filter to no luck

Sounds like either a polychaete explosion or possibley >>flatworms<<. What color where the "slugs" and can you post a pic?

Cheers
Steve

Or cant really take a pic for a week, or so but they arent flat worms they are small while slug like creatures with feelers my LFS guy said they were good for the tank and he has them in all his Reef tanks becuase i see them...anyways what is a polychaete explosion?

Unfortunately without a pic this will be a bit of a guessing game as far as the ID is is concerned. What I meant by polychaete explosion was epitokes.

Are these "critters" and your cloudy water related or did you just mention it passing?

Cheers
Steve

Well if the they are unrelated I would check the the powerheads or any returns to be sure they are not kicking up sand. It can sometimes be a hard one to pinpoint but be sure you post the water specs with the pics just to be sure.

No recent water changes, additions, aquascapping or temp spikes?

Cheers
Steve

Not to offend, but when was the last time the glass was cleaned inside and out? Salt "haze" on the outer glass and micro/film alage on the inside can have the same effect.

Cheers
Steve
