Hey guys I know its been a while but I finally got other tank up and running. Here's the problem I have been having with floating particles in the tank .. I know its not micro bubbles cuz I shut off my return and its still there and my 2 mp40s just blow it all around. the new tank is a 220 gal with a Proclear 400 sump which has 3 filter socks that I change every other day, also have a Reef Octopus 3000 Skimmer. Done a few water changes and still the same .. Any help will be appreciated.

Very nice. Love that rock in the center.
Guessing you have a sand sifter in there that's mixing stuff up. Had the same problem in my 220 because of a wrasse that buries itself. I mixed up the sand real well a coupla times a week to get the floating stuff floating, and cleaned the filter the next day each time. In a few weeks, maybe a month it was hardly noticeable anymore.

Ken ask where you bought the salt from. There are many others in fla that use this water. It might be good for the tank.
I am using the ocean water ...All shops over here use the same water that they pump it right from the ocean. Mostly ever 1 uses this water as well..
