    Default This a.m. Woke to cloudy water?

    Dusk lights come on and wow! Tank totally cloudy WTH? Checked the skimmer which I emptied last night. The cup wasn't fully on. So I'm thinking this may be the cause? What say you all?

    Check everything real well. Make sure no missing livestock and that pumps, temp, etc. are where they are supposed to be. Test the water.

    How do corals and fish look?

    +1 double check everything.
    Sounds like a bacterial bloom but with out a pic its hard to say. If it is a bacterial bloom make sure you have adaquate surface movement to get oxygen in there. Bacterial bloooms are usually not fatal to inhabitants if handled properly ie keeping oxygen levels up.

    I agree, first thing I thought of was a bacteria bloom.

    I agree...sounds like a bacterial bloom. I went through one of these when I first started using Bioplastics. Took almost a week to clear up but the water was VERY cloudy.

    I agree sounds like a bacterial bloom, but triple check that skimmer and make sure your not dumping micro bubble into the tank via the skimmer. At a glance they look the same.
