Greetings all! I setup my new 8.5 gal. nano tank Friday evening. I decided try a stone hard-scape for the first time, using bulk stone from the lfs labeled CaribSea Exotica Mountain Stone. Based on google research before purchase, the stones "should not affect ph or water chemistry" however, the water has been incredibly cloudy, almost milky, and tonight I found it had an odd, salty smell. I also used Seachem Flourite which I know can be very dusty so I gave both the Flourite and stones a good, heavy rinsing beforehand. I'm aware cloudiness in a new setup is normal but a salty smell???
