Woke up to a cloudy tank today.

Someone posted here a while ago showing a picture of his tank so green and cloudy you could barely see anything.

Well, my 125's been running for about 3 weeks now and the algae buildup is starting to get pretty intense. The water has been very clear until this morning when I woke up to find it cloudy. It didn't appear to have a greenish color but is the algae buildup the cause? I wanted to nip this in the bud before it gets out of hand.

I have a 12 hermit/10 snail cleanup crew presently.

How would you deal with this?

Sounds like a bacterial bloom.
If so, I'd just sit pretty (even if your aquarium doesn't look that pretty) and it will most probably clear itself. Jeff
In theory there should be no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.
