So I have figured out the right balanced equation in the first picture but I cannot figure out the net ion equation. I know that I do not include the spectator ions in a net ionic equation and to me the spectator ions would be the hydroxide ions (if Al(OH)3 dissociated in water) and the H+ ions but since aluminum hydroxide does not dissociate then it must be included in the net ion equation as Al(OH)3 so I would think that the net ion equation would be

Al(OH)3(s) + 3Cl-(aq) -> AlCl3(aq)

but that was the first thing I tried and it was wrong, so I tried adding in the 3H2O that gets made but that was wrong, so I added in the H+ ions and that still wasn't right, I cannot see where I am going wrong here. Please help!
