How are you cleaning your filter?
What size it the tank, what fish are in it, what substrate do you have, do you have live plants, and if so, how many?

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

Hi Frank when you say misty is it a white hazy look or does it have a green tinge to the water. You mentioned tropical fish so I am thinking that this is a freshwater setup? Also how are you cleaning your filters? As asked how old is the tank, how long has it been running? Is the water misty all the time or right after water changes or in between water changes. More information is needed to try to help you figure what is going on.

over feeding will make your water hazy
what do your water perimeters look like

37 gal bow front (saltwater)
octopus 150 skimmer
external penguin bio wheel 150 packed with cheato
ETH 200 watt inline heater
3 power heads 500gph
in line UV sterilizer

30 gal (brackish)
bio filter
under-gravel 2 power-heads 250gph

30 gal hex (freshwater)
bio filter
under gravel 2 power heads 170gph

Who ever said keeping fish was easy should have there head examined
It's more like a full time job !!!!

do you have fine sand? i do and if my power head is pointed down at all it starts to kick up sand and make the tank cloudy. Also i have a diamond goby that sand sifts and just from that my tank can get cloudy.
