You can see the top one is really coarse, I tried to take the shot at an angle.

I just noticed that it's creating some foam in the back... And is starting to smell like the goldfish bowl I had as a child.

That's the foam under the clearish plastic handle.

Yeah I have a rodi, zero tds. I made sure to test because of the new water source.

You will get foam from the salt/water mix . Try putting some of you rock into it?

I have never had my new water foam before, all my lr is with the fish in the qt at a friends house

It appears as it may still be clearing up? Just very slowly... I may try to drop some rowa phos in, in the morning depending on how it looks.

I wonder if I added the salt too fast and this is the result of that
Either way, if it's not clear by tomorrow afternoon I think I'll be doing a massive water change if not replacing it all.

There's nothing in it to be cycling the water is a day old and no ammonia source. What would be starting the cycle?
The rock in there has been dry for 2 yrs and is only in the tank to hold my plastic grate down.

If its a non fish cycke you need to add an ammonia source. IE- ammonia, or dead shrimp you know?
