 I  had  a  order  of  a  10ftX4ftX5ft  reef  tank  about  3  months  ago.  But  due  to  lack  of  time  and  supply  the  tank  had  to  be  a  FO  tank.  Presently  there  are  12-15  Butterflies  ,  4-6  Tangs  ,  6-8  Clowns  and  3  or  4  damsels.  Filtarations  are  2  Canisters  of  1000  litre  per  hour  and  2  Trickel  filters  of  size  4ftX10"X1ft  stuffed  with  Ceramics,  Bioballs  etc.
 As  the  tank  was  going  to  be  reef  so  i  added  Ca  +  .  
 The  problem  is  since  I  added  Ca  the  water  is  cloudy  as  there  are  no  inverts  the  water  is  cloudy.  The  fishes  are  fine  and  in  good  health.
 
 So  what  I  do  now  to  clear  the  cloudiness??
 Thankx  for  replying...

 Hi  Dhritiman  and  welcome  to  IAH.
 Please  do  not  add  Ca  indiscriminately  to  the  tank.  In  doing  so  your  Ca  concentration  in  your  tank  has  saturated  and  your  get  a  precipitate  which  shows  up  as  cloudiness.
 
 Ca  dosing  depends  on  the  Ca  usage  of  the  organisms  in  your   tank.  If  you  have  live  rock,  or  inverts  which  are  using  Ca,  you  need  to  dose  it.
 For  a  FO  tank  ,  you  don't.

 Thnx  for  replying.  Yeah  I  know  that  we  do  not  need  Ca  in  FO  tank.  But  the  tank  was  going  to  be  reef.  So  I  added  it.  But  later  decided  to  do  it  FO.  So  now  how  to  remove  the  cloudiness???

 Welcome  to  IAH  Dhritiman.  That  is  one  big  aquarium  you  have  taken  on!  I  figured  it  to  be  just  over  5600  litres  or  about  1500  gallons.  I  would  need  to  take  out  a  loan  just  to  buy  the  salt!  Do  you  have  a  good  source  of  sea  water?  Do  you  have  more  aquariums?  Have  you  been  keeping  fish  for  a  while?

 seachem  purigen  does  wonder  in  this  case.  but  availability  here  is  a  problem.it  is  actually  a  resin  type  of  bead  that  will  absorb  all  the  fine  particles,  the  main  advantage  is  that  it  can  be  reactivated  after  a  few  months  of  use  when  its  adsorbtion  properties  is  reduce,  you  can  try  googling  the  product  .

 It  should  get  filtered  out  eventually.  Use  plenty  of   fine  filter  material.  
 
 As  for  something  that  absorbs  the  extra  precipitate,  I  haven't  got  a  clue.  Hopefully  someone  like  Nauzer  or  Shankar  will  know.
 
 The  link  for  Seachem  purigen  is  below  
 http://www.seachem.com/products/product_pages/Purigen.html
 but  from  what  it  says  it  only  absorbs  nitrogen  products.
 
 Try  to  increase  skimmer  rate  !!  What  skimmers  do  you  have  on  the  monster  anyway?
