What are your water parameters still? Have you added anything to the tank lately? How long has it been setup? Has for the naso sorry for the luck but those fish are notorius for just up and dying. How much water did you change last time, and did you notice if it got cloudy after the change or before the water change. I will suggest 3 things I think it is: 1) when you did the water change you could have took to much out and the bacterial colonies are tring to catch back up to what they used to be, 2) algea bloom. This is when the algea is free floating in the water, this is why your getting the milky look. A UV sterilizer will take care of this. if you already dont have one. 3) I noticed you stated you had cruched coral that stuff can be really bad. When distrubed will cloud the water and it will look like a mily kind of water (like your stating). It will do this for a life time. Did you notice any of your fish kicking up the coral lately.fishlady said:I am new here, this is my first post and despite my research I am hoping someone here has an answer.
I have a 265 gal saltwater tank in our living room. I have various other smaller salt tanks but this is the 'issue tank'. I took a sample of our water to the lady at the local petstore and she told me that my results were the same as hers. From salinity to ammonia all levels are where they should be. The problem? the water is milky white. Its an established aquarium that I do monthly partial water changes to. Never had this problem before. Heres the tank details, any advice would be appreciated.
265 gal saltwater tank
rock- crushed coral
several areas of lace rock
7 penquin 350 filters with biowheels
one large lionfish
one very large batfish
one yellow sailfin tang
one small domino
and until yesterday one gorgeous Nasso Tang ( he died, not sure why)
Currenlty filtering water with a diotype side hanging filter, the petstore lady told me it would remove the smaller particles that were making the water milky... we are 24 hours into that and there has been no change.
