Quick dumb question about 2 part additives

After I add in Part 1, how long do i have to wait until I add part 2? Do i need to wait until part 1 fully disperse? I dont have a sump so I'm just goign to drop it next to the powerhead/emperor280 area. TIA!

as long as you cannot see the cloudiness of part 1 anymore you are fine.

yep... just wait for the cloudiness. If you add the first part in an area with high flow (like your sump) it shouldn't take too long to disperse. When I add the first part of Bionic its clear in about 4-5 seconds. But usually.. I measure and pour the first part, then by the time I've measured the second part, its been long since dispersed. I just like giving it that extra few seconds to spread out in the tank.

From your experiences, does it make a big difference to add it in the morning to prevent the ph going to high?
