    Could be something as simple as a fish stirring up the gravel.

    Check around the tank for disturbed gravel. If not, it could be a algae bloom.

    might sound like a stupid question but what is carbon dosing? my lfs told me to dose the water with stability for 11 days i did this but water is still a white cloudy colour from the light being off during the night, when i switch the light on in the morning in about 20 min the water is clear again! doesn't make any sense to me
