A few months ago changed over to crushed coral when I moved up to a 60 Gallon tank. I also had a water softner installed and wanted to make sure the water balanace was healthy.
Washed the heck out of the coral, before putting it in the tank, but the water was cloudy anyway. The water got better as things settled down, but I never can get that crystal clear look I had with just gravel.
I have tried filter floss and commercial water clearing drops. I have a Penguin filter sized for the tank, water tests good and fish are happy.
Will this be an ongoing battle? Any suggestions or solutions?
