I still have the receipt for all my stuff so I need you to tell me what to do when I go to petsmart tomorrow lol. None of it is open so i can get a refund on it all. I will get different salt and the amquel. Idk if they have the salt you recommended; hopefully, they do.

You are right. I dont mind spending money on pre mixed solution either, but I just saw that using baking soda is a way to do things if you are tight on money. Personally, since I do not know much about this stuff yet, I would not experiment with anything that is not pre-prepared for aquarium use.
I'm also a big fan of B-Ionic two-part alkalinity and calcium supplement, I've gotten good results from using it so far. I add it daily, just a part of my routine I come home from work and immediately add the B-Ionic, its not a pain at all to keep up.
