This is kinda what I was wondering. 2 days ago I added some Caribsea aragonite reef sand I rinsed it in a 5 gal
bucket with RO
water then gently poured into my tank by lowering with a kool-aid type pitcher. My water turned so cloudy I couldn't see anything in my tank. Guess I didn't rinse well enough. it settled after half a day but everytime I move the sand even a little bit the entire tank turns cloudy again. I wanted to do a PWC
but didn't mix my water until 8am this morning I work tommorrow and wanted to do the water change tonight.
The other question I have is say I mix my water to a SG
of 1.025 but the water was cold after it warmed up I tested the SG
and it was 1.020 so if I add 1 or 2 more scoops of salt to the water to reach the correct SG
should I wait another 24 hours from that point or would 2 hours beyond that point be ok.
