I'd put it down to NTS.

EDIT: Hmm there's no mouse-over explanation for that one.. New Tank Syndrome.

Before you settle on the over eating, make sure you do a full range of tests. Calcium precipitates at around 500 ppm, and can cloud up a n aquarium. Just a thought, but don't surrender without knowing all of your element levels, just to be extra safe.

It sounds like the snails are spawning. This happens in my tank at least once every six or so weeks. See if you can't see a few of them huddled up in a group, probably near the top of the tank. That's where it seems to happen most. One or more of them will be letting out a small white stream of white milky stuff.

It should go away naturally in a day if that's it.
