I don't know of any chemicals that help to clear out the water that way. I also would not recommend trying to "treat" the tank until we know for sure what it is that is causing the cloudyness.

Could you give us some water parameters? It could help us trouble shoot...

a coral bloom, and some regular aquriam assories bought fromm the pet store.
Coral bloom?
What accesssories?

What about any clearing chemicals??
None that I would ever recommend. I think waiting at this point is the best course of action.

Has the tank started to cycle yet?

This sounds like your first venture with a marine aquarium and that you are just setting up your system, My advice to you is STOP! READ! - this and other forums. CHeck out the posted articles, ask your questions and wait for the replies.

Please do not be in a rush to start adding livestock to your new tank. I too had a FW tank for many years before venturing into SW. Nothing good happens quickly in a SW tank. It takes a lot of time and patience.

Are you planning on a FO, FOwLR or reef tank?
