    I needed to bring up my Alk a little so I dosed some Baking soda. this is the first time I have done this, and the water got really cloudy and has stayed cloudy for about 5-10 minutes now. Is this normal? what should I do? I checked my pH, and it dropped, but not by much. about 8.4 to 8.2

    Well, with any luck my 75 will be wet in the next week or two. I was thinking now might be the time to start picking up whatever Additives/Supplements I should have. Of course I won't be using them right away, but this way I can get things over a few weeks & have it on hand. I didn't use...
