aerating mixed SW

I was just wondering what other people do?
When mixing your SW and then storing it, do you use an aeration hose on your PH? I was told it was a good idea by a trusted LFS.

No need to for aeration and Ph is fine all by itself. I store mixed water for up to 2 months with just a PH and heater.

I just use an old air pump that I don't use with an airstone. The air bubbles will keep the water oxygenated and well mixed

I have a Maxijet PH and a heater in my holding tank. I keep about 27G of water mixed and ready to use. The PH keeps it nicely 'stirred.' 8)
Happiness is defined by the joy we bring to the lives of others, for without that, we ourselves cannot be.
