that white light will show alot of tiny particles, i wouldnt worry to much, it will all settle down when you get it tuned in.

Does it look clear with just to 10k blubs on?

When I used to run actinics, I noticed that my tank looked cloudy with just those on but once I fired up the MH blubs, the tank looked clear. It might have just been my eyes though. :arg:

I 2nd what leveldrummer said. The MH's will probably highlight more stuff that is in the water column. The other thing you may want to do is take your hand and wipe off the inside glass. Sometimes small dust and stuff will stick to it, giving your tank a cloudy appearance when in fact it isn't as bad as it looked.
