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
