Thread: Foggy water

    That was definitely an algae bloom. Probably from the new lights.

    I would have thought so to but it started out a a white foggy mess and only turned green a day before I put the UV pump in.

    Is that sand new? Is it play sand? If so I would try to avoid that cause it releases silicates which causes foggy water and algae issues. Also if you have a phosphate test kit I would test your phosphates. And how long are your lights running for? Just post everything you can think of. The more details the better we can help you.
