    My marine tank was crystal clear this morning, then it seemed in a matter of hours it was milky and cloudy. Nothing has died recently...the fish seem fine. The corals have retracted a little ( they dont look as "happy" as normal) and the inverebrates have seemed to all gather on the tops of the...

    Hi Folks, for a few weeks now I have had a particulate matter floating in my tank. From a distance, the tank looks cloudy, and up close you can see tons of stuff in there. I made a quick video and stuck it on Youtube - hopefully that saves me having to inaccurately describe it (I need to re-do...

    Hello everyone. So, over the last 2 weeks I noticed that my 16 gallon tank was starting to get a little cloudy or milky looking. I've been monitoring all of the basic parameters (ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, Ph, salinity) and to my knowledge everything seems to be in check. Well, over this last...

    So this morning right before I had to leave for work I went down to my fish tank to just check on it. It was incredibly cloudy and the sump was filled with big bubbles (along with the protein skimmer). I was only able to find one fish in the tank which is not abnormal for me in the mornings...

    I'm mixing a batch of saltwater (for use in new fish quarantine; haven't bought the fish yet). I put the water in the container, then added the salt (1/2 cup per gallon) of Instant Ocean from an unopened fresh bag. Put two powerheads in there and also swish it around once in a while. After four...
