What's your filtration consist of? Example, I use chemi pure elite, phosguard and purigen. I change my filter floss 2x's a week.
How old is the tank? Maybe debris on the rocks are being kicked up?
Sorry if these were all asked before. I have more questions but we'll start here.
I did not add salt directly to my tank. I slowly mixed about 10 gallons worth of salt in buckets and added to the fuge water until it was at the correct salinty level.
I did rinse the chemi pure bags very well prior to placing into my refugium.
Powerheads are not stirring up the sand. They are more pointed at each other.
I guess my filtration is not much compared to yours. I have the water overflowing into a filter pad, which sit on top of the two bags of ChemiPure. the filter pad is one of those rectangular blocks about 2 inches thick. I change it weekly, so maybe I should change it more often.
Not sure the age of the tank or anything in it. It was a CL
's buy. 72 gallon bowfront, 30 gallon fuge, with wooden stand, pump and plumbing attached, and about 100 lbs of base rock.
I concur with the possibility of debri from the rock being kicked up, I just figured it would have cleared up by now.
