    If I'm not mistaken you're suppose to add it in the Sump, in a high flow area, not direct in the display!

    Its more the high flow area, Once in haste I added Fusion2 to my sump in the DSB area and also got the same effect!

    I would check the magnesium levels too or just dose some, magnesium will stop the faking. The calcium is carbonate are stopped from crystallizing by magnesium as it makes contact with the CO2 in the tank.
