I am still having problems with this cloudy water .
It is def. not near as bad as it was before. What I did was I started shutting off the light every night, sometimes I just left it off all day. I have done 2 15% water changes in 2 weeks. The cloud is still there, just floating. Fish, crabs, eat fine. I just want my clear water back again! The tank sits right next to a window, but not directly in front. Yet, I have a lot of windows in the house where sunlight will hit it. Do yall still think this is a lighting issue? or something else? My water tested fine at the LFS
. I have yet to get my own test kit. I can buy a test kit this weekend and report readings if needed.
Also, to answer Justin, I do have a refugium system and I have a bed of sand and some green moss with live rock in the sump. I also have a light on the sump and skimmer is in the sump. The return hose goes into a sock filter.
I am wanting to purchase my new t5 lighting and get some more live rock so I can start aquiring corals, but I need to fix this problem before all that.
Thanks for reading this and for any replies.
