    I have never used it so I can't comment on the cloudyness, but I would stop using it. If your tank parameters have stabelized and you have some liverock with some good coraline growth the tank will be purple in no time. If your tank is off you could pour the whole bottle in and coraline still won't grow.

    I'd suggest saving your money for something else.

    If the cloudyness persists try running some carbon to clear up the water.
    Upgrade in the works! Keep looking for an update.

    Save your money - as most addatives are waste of money, including this one. Your tank will never know the difference if you stop using it...
