Linksyz, did you mix the salt in the tank? It's better and safer to mix the salt in another container then check the SG. let that mix with a ph for at least a day, this will prevent cloudiness of the water as the salt will be completely mixed. I would not bring the temp. down that fast. Set your AC a few degrees lower then bring down slowly again. 82F-80F,80H-79F and so on. This will be less stress on your fish.

Yeah.. everyone keeps saying this salt thing... its getting pretty annoying. Im FULLY aware to not mix salt directly in the tank. I did it ONLY because there is jack squat in the tank and would have been the same as if i mixed it in a bucket. Thanks to Tank though, my water is very clear now and is getting clearer. And as for the temp, i will take that into consideration. Its ok though because even on a siring hot day my tanks temp doesnt go above 83F so it would take just a fan over the top of the tank which i have to bring the temp down a bit.
