    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.

    Looks like it is holding. The tank is clearer than the photo.
