    No matter how much rinsing with clear water, I cannot manage to get rid of the dust from the red sea REEF BASE Argonite (not " live!").
    The water in the newly established tank, is milky and cloudy. After a few days, it clears enough see through, but not enough to be clear. Once I re-start my water circulating with the power head, it becomes "dirty" once again, with the dust.
    How to solve this problem ?

    Seachem clarity should help
    Or run some serious mechanical filtration. I had the same problem so filled my phosphate reactor with filter floss and it cleared things up.

    Mechanical filtration may help the dust. Get some gauze or filter floss and run your water through that. But it'll settle with time.
