I just can't seem to pin point what the water is not crystal clear?
All chem. are within range, just bought a new Emperor 400 and that took 60% of the cloudiness away however it is still a white cloudiness to the water.
No problem. I just wanted to make sure the answers you got actually peratined to your situation. These question usually come from people with either brand new tanks or people who have comepletely switched out their filter and are mini-cycling.
So, now on to your issue. If there are particulates in the water, the lights will accentuate it, but it shouldn't be there in the first place. Do you have the polishing pad in the fluval as the very last thing the water goes through?
Another possibility is that somehow a tiny bit of air is getting into the canister and is being blown out a microbubbles. These bubbles can get caught in the currents, and nerver make it to the surface, or are gassing off at the same rate they are being put into the water column by the filter. A third (but more remote possibility) is that the output from the canister is disturbing the substrate (you didn't mention what you have for substrate) just enough for any tiny particles to become suspended.
I have filter floss "poly pillow fill" in the last compartment of the Fluval. I will check the fluval for possible air leaking, by shutting it down and starting it again right? The substrate it rick so thatis not the problem.
I have poly fil in my XPs as well. But I still toss a micro-polish pad on top of it. Seems to really work well. Plus, since not much gets through the flos, I can rinse and reuse the micro pads quite a bit.
