Really loving the rocks now that the water has cleared up.
The rocks have some nice textures and colors that should really pop with the black background.
And, as it so happens, the water became cloudy a few hours after taking the pictures. Since there was no disturbance in the water, I imagine I am dealing with an organic bloom rather than mere AS dust. A bloom that seemingly lasts indefinitely as I've been battling it for many months, as you already know.
Water parameters have been fine in my last scape so I am unsure what is causing it. The only time I managed to get rid of it was when I used some API carbon or new Purigen. I currently have neither, so I placed an order for both a few minutes ago.
