tetra easy balance plus

so I tried some of this the other day, just to try to lower the PH a little bit. stupid thing to do... I regret doing it. well after I put it in the tank, which was 2 or 3 days ago, the tank started getting all cloudy. and now it's still really cloudy....

what to do?

I'd do small water changes every day until the water clears up. Wow. that is wierd. almost like it's cycling it's self. How old is your tank?

Mind you, I'm a newb though, that's just a default thing to try to prevent a ph swing.

That's strange. Admittedly, the last time I used it was nearly ten years ago, but I don't remember any problems with it.

What's the tank like? Parameters? Dosing? Is it a new tank? It could also just be a coincidental bacteria bloom. If that's the case, look around for more advice - I seem to remember something about water changes being counterproductive.
