It's cleared up nicely now and getting more clear by the day. I decided to use Seachem Clarity and added filter floss changed everyday for a few days in both my AC30 and AC70. I'm now down to just using the AC30. Still using a Maxspect R420R 16k until I get around to getting a Fluval 3.0 from using it previously to grow corals. It will definitely hit the par needed but how can I tell if it's a passable spectrum for my plants. I have it set at Ch1 90 Ch2 60, looks like a white spectrum but with a hint of blue in it.

Edit on the lighting. Just took my PMK from my reef tank and wow I was pushing 200+ par at the substrate. I readjusted my lighting to ~75par at the substrate. Does this seem ok for sword type plants? I have Echinodorus bleheri in the back left at about 50par, Anubias barteri var nana and Echinodorus parviflorus on either side of the dragon bubbler in about 75par.
