Hey all I'm switching from b ionic 2 part dosing to all for reef. I have one dosing pump I use to dose alk to the tank. I emptied the container and purged the lines of b ionic. I added the all for reef to the container, hooked it back up and started to clear the line of air. The all for reef coming out now is pretty cloudy and has lots of carbonate pieces or flakes. Do I need new lines or is it safe and dissolves in my tank? I purged the line about 5 times and while it is getting clearer I don't wanna crash my tank.
