To load a picture, take it, download it to your desktop. In the message box click, go advanced...
you will see a little smiley face, next to that is a paperclip...click on the paperclip, browse to the photo in the box that will pop up, DO NOT close the box until the photo is uploaded..

If it is indeed a bacteria bloom, then as mentioned there is not much you can do about it.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

The tank doesn't look the slightest bit cloudy to me at all. How long ago was this picture taken. Before the clouding appeared, presumably. Right?

That was like a week after a took the pic on my avatar. By then, it was after my too big water change and was starting to get cloudy. Does the top even look slightly cloudy? I think it sorta does. Heres another one: I think this one shows the cloudiness better. This was taken just a few minutes ago.

Looks like a slight reflection to me more so than a water quality issue. But I would wait for tazmans approval as they are much more experienced than I am

If that is the after shot, which it looks like it is as the plants in the Original Posters avatar are different, then I see absolutely nothing wrong with that water at all.

By cloudy I would expect not being able to see in the tank at all....if there is a slight cloudiness then run the filters with filter floss and that should remove a lot of "free floating" debris in the tank...if you do anything with the filter, keep whatever you remove, in tank water NOT tap water, it will kill the bacteria.

Performing water changes will likely clear it up overtime, or it might just disappear on its own. I would really not worry about it unless it starts to effect your fish and then we need to look at other possible causes.
