So I bought a test kit and when I opened it there was crap all over the bottles. When I did ammonia, right when I put the second drops in it turned all cloudy and weird. If this normal? Did I get a bad kit?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

So I just got a refractometer and the salt is way high, like 1.035. Should I just do a water change but add ro water? What should I get the salinity to?

Since it looks like you have a little way to go on your cycle you can change your SG without to much of a problem it might make the cycle last a little longer but in the long run it will be better for your tank.
