    Here is a good web calculator that will give you the amount you need. It also has some good notes at the bottom.

    CNYKOI - Alkalinity (KH) calculator

    I think we need a little more info.

    in the mean time don't panic and do something as a knee jerk reaction

    okay. it's all fixed. dad came home and showed me the ropes.
    it's been raining all day and my water's clarity was terrible after the storm.. all cloudy and dusty <.< hopefully it gets better.. although it will rain all night as well.. and a little in the morning.. stupid tropical storm.
