Can you post some more information on the tank size and filtration and the exact numbers and size of the fish.

Cloudy water usually occurs IME, when a tank is first set up, when the bioload is significantly increased or there is some disturbance which affects beneficial bacteria in the tank/filter.

I was told that he is running an XP2, XP4, and a smart filter 55 on this 90 gallon tank. IE plenty of filtration.

I totally agree. From the minute information that I have received, it would appear to be spot on.
