Rodi help

I did a water change 5 gallons in my 55 gallon fowlr that has perfect parameters. Just started using rodi water and tank suddenly went cloudy a white haze. Stayed that way for a week I then cleaned all my filters and skimmer and another pw change and seemed to get worse. Never had a an issue

Hi! Have you been using a PH buffer? I know some people that experienced what sounds like you are, and it was due to their buffer. I don't know exactly how it does it, but that was their problem.

How did you do the water change? Did you add salt directly to tank?

I had this issue with my last tank once and I think it was the pH buffer! It also made some weird white stuff on top of the water when I mixed it. I poured it out.

I think the problem is the poor quality salt your using, I haven't started my salt water tank yet, but I'm sure topfin cuts corners somehow and makes the salt cheap and not good.
