Are you using live rock? Let's stop changing the water and let tank recover. Can we give us more tank pictures and sump pictures? Sounds like a water system turbulence

Let us stop changing the water and let the tank settle down before finding the problem.

It's hard to say what the reason is, I don't know your tank situation.

Where do you think the problem is?

Before finding the problem, temporarily stop the WC and let the tank recover. It should be that the system oscillates to

Hello Daniel, do you really dose 5ml ZeoBac 2 x weekly or was this just a typo ?

If the water does not get clear within the next couple of weeks I would highly recommend to remove the filter cotton you use. Such kind of materials can also cause cloudiness if they do leach anything to the water.

Can you please post how much ZeoVit you have in the reactor and what exactly the water flow through the reactor is (measured) ?

Instead of putting additional dry rock to the sump I would recommend to use some good quality fresh live rock to improve biology.

These pictures were taken 5am this morning.
The lights were out for 11 hours, I turned on the room lights.

Once the Radion lights (tank lighting) come on for 3 -4 hours this get much worse.

Use good salt + good Ro water, change water every week, reduce or suspend nutrition and other supplements, increase the removal of organic matter, use Zeo Snow, Zeo activated carbon, zeolite, increase the light source for 8~10h, replace the filter every day. , manual brushing, help with small functional creatures... and more. Slowly changing the old, naturally there will be good things happen. Can you post a tank picture and a sump picture, thank you

What is the true quality of Ro water?
Confirm this question first

Thank you for the picture, this should not be considered a DSB. Usually the thickness of the DSB sand layer should be more than 12cm to be truly effective.

Do you still use other methods to reduce NP, such as UV?

Chaeto may be helpful for absorbing nutrients, but I don't recommend using it, usually skimmer inside the skimmer, zeolite reactor, Zeo activated carbon, which is well maintained. If you really want a Chaeto, you can add it after everything is perfect (one is that plankton provides food feeding), but it depends on what you think is needed.

Recommendation - Do not use incompatible objects or elements to reduce and avoid some erroneous things.

The picture looks like the problem is not very serious, the nutrient salt is slightly higher, let us start from the reduction of nutrients in KZ, answer G.#34, you use live rock which is very good. Remove from incompatible objects or elements. Confirm the water quality of Ro and confirm if the filter is the cause.

Hello Daniel225, some parts are answered by others. I'm really sorry

I can't edit the line again.

==

I just read it with my computer. This is my idea - usually there is no problem with lighting 8~10. I don't know that the small bubbles on the live rock are the cause of excessive carbon source or the lighting time is too often, but usually it should be water quality. Excessive oxidation

Do you still add other strains?
Green look, a bit like green mud

The sand looks new, and most of the green mud alga grows on the live rock.

Use and flow of Zeo zeolite, Zeo bac, sp, start3, Zeo activated carbon.

Of course, confirm that Ro water quality is good.

Shorter lighting times can reduce their condition. Start with Kz basic product 4.
