Cloudy tank

YouTube - My Cichlid Tanks

i have 2 identical tanks side by side. both 75 gallons, both aragonite substrate, both african cichlids. and equally stocked

one has crystal clear water and no algae on any of the decor... but the other one where my mbuna are is all green and the water seems to be slightly cloudy (isnt crystal clear) but not milky or anything.

i maintain them the same, water changes every 5 days.

all fish in them are fed NLS.

both tanks are running more than double the required filtration

i just cant figure it out

I had the same issue with my tank. I just put some "Water Clarifier" in and a few hours later it was crystal clear and the cloudiness never retuned. Worth a try.

yeah i guess ill give it a go.

any idea why algae growth would be way more in one tank than the other if they're running the same lights?
