    cloudy water

    i have some probelm with my water.

    Yesterday i added some liquid calcium in the tank (1 capfull)
    And this morning i woke up and the tank was all cloudy.
    I checked the PH and is fine (~8) i'd checked the carbonate hardness and it's fine too, but i think the calcium level in the water is high (500 mg/l)

    i don't know what to do. My corals are doing ok ,just 1 of the brain is a little small than usual. The fish are find too and the cloudyness is going away slowly...

    Anyways is there anything else i should do?

    Marie1Le,

    It sounds like Calcium precipitating..

    1st thing to do is a large water change. (When in doubt, always do a water change).

    It would help us all if you filled in your tank's specifications in your Profile. This way we can tell you how much of a water change is necessary. It will help everyone in the future.

    Then start with a 10 gallon water change, that should help.
