Really? It looks crazy. Should I turn my filter on and get some flow yet or just let it stay still. Don't seem to be anything other then the web stuff in floating but water is still pretty cloudy

I would get some water flow. Do you have a powerhead? If not use your canister.

For the cycle, you'll want your filter on so it can build BB in it. you can turn on the PH if you want, not required. Leave the lights off, it'll only encourage algae growth.

So checked salt level again and still kinda low. Should I adds some more salt now or just wait till water is finally cleared in a day or so.

Go ahead and get your salinity level right with your power head a d filter running, get it up to temp, leave the lights off. It's going to take a day or two or even three to clear the tank up nice. After a day or two of your system running at the right salinity and temp. Start testing for ammonia

Ok salt is at 1.024-1.025 now. Temp is 78. Have power head running and filter. Have them kinda aimed up so there is lots for surface movment. But I will say it looks a lot worse after adding more salt. Here a current picture

That's okay, like Trueerfan said, patience is key. It should clear up in a day or two now that your salinity is accurate, got a good temp going just have to let everything settle.
