Hi all,
This is my first tank/saltwater tank Ive had. its up and running for about 3 months but I added fish in about 2 months ago. Ever since then the water keeps turning brown and more worrying is that it's getting browner slot quicker and darker. I have done water changes, vacumed the sand bed and I'm currently running seachem purigen in the filter and it doesn't seem to be doing anything. I've tested the water and all my levels are fine. it's 230 liter tank with 2 clown fish, 4 chromis and 2 Bengali cardinal fish. I don't know if the filter I'm running is big enough for the tank it's a aqua one occelaice canister filter says it can handle a 300 liter tank but I'm skeptical of this

As already said we need a full set of water parameters including nitrate and phosphate and a picture would be very helpful as well.

And Welcome to R2R!!!
