Water Haze

My water is hazy looking. Does anyone know why this happens and how to get rid of it. It has no coloration, but is just hazy.

40 gallon SeaClear Acrylic, 192 watt Orbit Lunar PC, Filstar XP2, Filstar XP1, JBJ Regulator, Rhinox 5000 glass co2 diffusor, 9 watt UV sterilizer, Hydor Inline Heater, Pool Filter Sand substrate
Filstar pimp #53

How comes shoppings so stupid, looks at all this stuff I haves, what do I do's with it.

Probably a little bacteria explosion, nothing to worry about... Check your ammonia and nitrite levels to make sure your fishies will be okay.

You can get rid of it in many different ways, the simplest might be to wait and see how it goes for a couple of days. The organisms that the "haze" consists of propagate rapidly, then run out of whatever they need to live on, and disappear. Sometimes the haze is the beginning of a green water (algae) outbreak, search through the board to look for all the different stories and remedies.
