I just finally got my caribsea aragonite in, the water is really cloudy, I rinsed as much as I could before putting it in, but its still bad, should I turn my filters, powerhead and skimmer off to get rid of it, or will it still clear with them all on. thanks

mine tooks about 48 hours to clear, I used a skimmer and powerhead. I'd say definite cloudy water for 48-72hours, especially if you just put in freshly mixed saltwater too. just let it settle

Give it some time....as the bacteria begin to populate, they will weight down on the fine particles and cause them to settle.
