salinty during cloudiness?

Ok so encountered a problem. I purchased two bags of sand and rinsed then for what felt like hours and felt like I was wasting a lot of sand. Wouldn't u know it I still got a cloud when I put sand in. I still haven't adjust salinity levels and was wondering if the Cloudiness would throw off salinity reading. Should I wait til it clears. Thanks ahead of time

Yea only bad thing is I cleaned my skimmer so its not doing anything yet. As for salinity I used two 50g bags that would make salinity .21 I want it at .25 does the amount of salt per gallon sound about right

Also is this the type of cloudiness that goes away by turning all pumps off or is filtration only way.

You want around 1.023 to 1.025 for reef tanks and 1.020 to 1.023 for Fowlr tanks. And it will go away by itself after a day or 2. Atleast mine did!

If you have any rock make sure that it goes in now and it will clear up in a couple days. Cloudiness will not throw off salinity.

If it is live or even semi live it has beneficial bacteria which will filter the water.
