Hi I upgraded my 110 to a 125 in the beginning of December. Since I've upgraded the tank has become cloudy.

Fish: yellow tang, 3 green chromis, 3 pj cardinals, 2 bangaii cardinals, and 3 clownfish.

Inverts: 2 bumble bee snails, 3 hermit crabs, pencil urchin, and horseshoe crab(until his permanent home arrives).

I have 70 to 80 lbs of LR and 80 to 100 lbs LS. I thought the sand was causing it to be cloudy as it's super fine and the horseshoe crab is constantly moving it. But even when he has a period of rest the tank remains cloudy. I put a courser sand over it to help with no luck. So my question is what could be making my tank cloudy all the time?

The filtration is a wet/dry trickle filter and the tank came pre drilled. I am doing everything for this one I've done for all my other tanks. This is the only thing wrong.

My water params are ammonia and nitrite 0 nitrate is 10.
