Particles(dust like) floating around in my tank.

I have had my tank up and running for about 2 months and Did a few water changes to see if I can get rid of the particles but its no use. I took my water to my lfs to get tested and everything is like it needs to be. I am running t5 lights, a wet/dry filter with carbon in it, fluval 405 with carbon also, 2 yellow tangs,2 dimond gobe's, yellowtail damzel, 14 snails, 2 crabs, about 90lbs of LR, xenias,green star polyp. I have a 75g tank. If anyone can give me advice I'd appreciate it.

Could be dafnia (water fleas). Do they move on there own if there's no water flow?

I'm not sure I have not tried to turn of the power head. But It seems as if they would.

I don't have any real idea of what there is for a saltwater tank. I didn't even realize that's what you had a first. I just reread it.

I would say maybe get some type of filter feeder? A couple filter shrimp or something.

They are not bubbles cause I just set up my nano cube and I got those in there and the ones in my 75g look nothing like the ones in the cube so I don't think they are micro bubbles. It almost looks like dust.
