    I have heard that dosing to much or not slowly enough can cause this. I dose 15ml of BRS Calcium and Alkalinity each day. Calcium while lights are on and Alkalinity when lights out. Does the clumping sand effect the tank at all? I mean I can turn my mp10s up higher now

    Could be precipitation​ or low aklinatiy to low ph makes the water acidic...it dissolves the calicum carbonate that is your sandbed and it clumps together.
