Hey everyone I moved to a new home and set up my 400gallon my 150 gallon 20 gallon hospital and 40 gallon planted tank .. all great and fun except my well water even after the softener comes out cloudy and remains cloudy for a full week at least.. I imagine it is causing my fish stress.. so I purchased an 300gpd rodi unit and a 100gallon Rubbermaid stock tank for water storage but Iím at a loss for a cost effective way to re mineralize.

So far Iíve tried to following to achieve the following

10 tsp of alkaline buffer
10 tblspn of equilibrium
5 tsp Acid buffer

But now Iím left thinking how expensive this will be and the equilibrium has clouded up my water anyways, any suggestions on re mineralization without cutting with my dirty ass well water?? Iím at my wits end trying to provide clearer cleaner water to my fish

To reach

Ph 7.0
Gh 6
Kh 6

Somehow my text got out of order im dosing those to reach those gh kh and ph parameters. Thanks!
