I topped up my existing ADA tank with a 1/3rd bag of remaining ADA that I had. The tank was rescaped, there are plants but no fish. The existing media in my tank was kept for days in the same tank water taken out in a bucket.
Its been more than 3 weeks the initial ADA dust has cleared but when I turn on the lights, the water appears milky white, especially directly under the lights.
Note that lights have always been the same, one 10K Azoo tube and remaining 6.5K PLL tubes.
the effect is like that of some milk being spilled in water. I have been doing 90% water changes due to ADA addition for 2 weeks almost daily, but this milky water issue remains even though my last change was a week back just to wait and see if things improve.
I use a DIY sump with 2 types of mechanical filter media that includes green scotchbrite type media and cotton wool. I have 2 full bags of ceramic rings for bio filteration.
