I would defo invest in a test kit so you know the exact readings rather than just off the chart too

I had one from a friend but it ran out, I'll grab another one tomorrow when I go get more water.

The Nem did close up during the water change but not anymore than when it does at night when the lights are off

Please tell me you didn't go to Saltwater Warehouse......

Aquandrew is correct.... right now, the best thing you can do is a few large back-to-back water changes. Dumping chemicals in is not the answer

How often do you have your water tested, is it possible this didn't happen all of a sudden? Water params don't often read off the charts overnight without a drastic change in the tank. It may have been building up for ages before you noticed cloudy water?

I went to Gerber's SaltWater ware house...
I had my levels tested last Sunday when I did a water change routine, they were all zero and 8.4 ph

Keep the water changes up get a test kit and try and get everything down and hopefully most of your stuff will be ok. How did your heater explode?

It was faulty I think I was in my living room and all the sudden my breaker to my house flipped and the sump started smoking. The heater was in a million pieces. Next morning all my coral was dead. I've been slowly restarting and now this.
