Cloudy water

Im doing my first brackish tank and I had some questions about cloudy water... ive just started to increase my salt content with marine salt and the water has become cloudy ... the fish seem fine.

I did some research and Im pretty sure its from all the new disolved minerals that are in the marine salt

my question is, is this normal? and will it go away after awhile

Ive been disolving larger and larger amounts of salt in my water change water before I put it in the tank with a cap of aqua plus

thanks in advance - hutch
