Aquarium Lights

Hello everyone, I have 2 aquariums in my living room. One is a 36 Gallon Bowfront and the other is a normal 10 gallon tank. Both are glass. However they have different lights. One has a fluorescent light and the other is LED. My 36 gallon with the LED seems cloudy but the fluorescent light is crystal clear. Is my tank really cloudy or is it just different lights against the water?

I would say it is that the water is cloudy as I have never had this problem before.

Would also suspect tank. Blue light by bulb or LED generally looks more crisp I find.

That痴 what I was thinking, I put some tetra brand water clarifier in yesterday. Last night I put my fluorescent light on my 36 just to see if there was a difference, the water had a purple ting like the girl at petsmart said it would have so I知 hoping the water clarifier clears it up in the next day or so
