After 30 years of freshwater and 25 years of salt water I still don't know it all. I have been having a heck of a time getting my saltwater tank crystal clear like it used to be.
I had my 150 gallon tank spring a leak and over the last year, it is clear, but not crystal clear like my fresh water. Before the leak, It was crystal clear. I was able to save about 90 gallons of the 130 or so that the tank holds (I have about 200lbs of rock) It is making me nuts. The fish are healthy, growing and look fine. I have added on fish without incident, but it does not look 100% clear.
I have a wet dry filter (homemade with a 30 gallon tank supporting it). I just put in a brand new UV
set up. I also have (2) hot magnums and a small wave maker to give plenty of surface movement.
I was recently told to purchase the Rena filter to clear up anything that might be preventing my tank from being clear again.
Any advise? I did change the skimmer box on my wet dry to go with a more powerful pump. I do see some microbubles in the tank, but I don't think there is enough to cause the tank to get cloudy
Any advise would be appreciated.
