    Hi

    ran into something strange, i was setting up my holding tank using RO and microbelift salt, i mixed it up at 24deg and let it run with a skimmer, some flow and added some special blend, and a day later i see the water is milky, the heater i had stopped working, could the cold temp have caused a snow storm?? i am going to test params this eve to see, but i added some carbon and filterfloss to get things running and hoping this eve its clear

    was a thought, i went to around 15deg

    seeing your post on another thread, could it be the specialblend? there is nothing in the tank except a ts2 skimmer, heater, and 2 flow pumps
