saltwater tank yellow

I used well water for my 75 gallon saltwater tank that I filled up yesterday and the whole thing is yellow is there anything that can make the yellowish color go away?

Not use well water. I did the same thing. It causes alot of problems. Mainly algae. And it won't go away especially if you are topping it off with well water and doing water changes with it as well. I would say empty it and get a rodi system or go to the store and buy jugs of purified or distilled water.
