    Hey all. So my 20 gallon reef tank just started getting cloudy but I think it is because I started dosing Mg, Ca, and KH with Reef Fusion part 1 and 2 and a Seachem Mg . I have only done it 4 times adding less than the recommended amount over the past 3 weeks. My tank is over a year and hear are...
  2. The THINK Tank
    So I am looking for some advise. MY Aquarium that is new has been cycled, All tests are good but my water is very cloudy. I am pretty sure it is Calcium precipitation. The question is how can I remove it from the water column to clear up the water?

    Hi everyone! It's been quite the build for me, it's now going on 6 months & I'm ready for water!! Last week I filled the system with fresh water & white vinegar. My thought was that I would clear all the pipe & pumps of anything that's no good. What I noticed is that after a week of the...

    Ok so I know a little bit of cloudiness can be normal while the tank is cycling. But the tank has been like this for a few days, and it's beginning to worry me. The yellow/brown color is what bothers me most. Could that be an algae bloom in the water? We've changed the filter pad. We do not...

  9. Dosing and reactor equipment
    I've been using 2-part buffer for a few months and the water has always stayed clear, as long as I was slow with it. Today it turned my water cloudy. I didn't do much different. Should I be concerned? 80 degrees, 1.025, Ph 8.1, KH ~200ppm, NH3 0, Nitrite 0, Nitrate <15, Phosphate trace

  12. Anemones
    I first purchased a sebae anemone on an impulse. I saw it, "oohed" and "ahhed", bought it, and plopped it in my tank (acclimation of course). It looked like this! A beautiful, white, DYING color (I didn't know!) The first few weeks were hell. It kept moving around, and we couldn't feed...

    Lights turned on today and noticed the tank was foggy i have never had this happen without adding anything to the tank. Should I be concerned? It is not green so probably not associated with algae bloom. 180 gallon display tank sump with refug in basement with a 50 gal barrel feeding return pump...

    Hello, My Queen Angel (medium) was purchased October 8th. I recently noticed that her body is not as vibrant in color and seems to have a cloudiness to it. Here eyes are not cloudy and her fins look fine. She is still eating very well. The cloudiness cannot be seen when looking at her...

  16. Reef Fish
    My pink spotted goby has been rubbing against the rock and the sand for a while now. At first I thought it was just a normal itch but it's become way too frequent and violent. Today I noticed he has an abrasion on his side, presumably from all the scratching. Now I also notice it seems like one...

    Hey I'm fairly new at reef tanks. I just set up a 15 gallon tank with live rock. The water is cloudy from adding the salt. Is it dangerous to add fish to the tank while its cloudy?

    Hey guys, I don't know if I am just having a very serious case of the uglies. I got so much like green slime algae all over the glass, on the sand bed a bit, on the rocks. My water is very cloudy, you cannot see from side to side in my 3 ft tank. My ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate are all in spec...

    My tank is 3 weeks old. When I started it the water was cloudy when I added the live sand (duh) and then it cleared up in 24 hours and was awesome until last Friday. Then I noticed that it was a little cloudy looking at it from the front and VERY cloudy looking in from the side. You can't even...
