Cool Does Saltwater go bad???

I have a large container that I make my saltwater in and some how the powerhead I had circulating the water was unplugged and the water has sat there with no movement for 30 days. I plugged the powerhead back in but is that water OK to use?????

I think it would be alright but I would definitely check all of the levels just to make sure.

If nothing got into the bucket I don't see why not... What type of plastic is the bucket made out of?

If your not happy at what you're looking at, you're looking at it the wrong way.

There may be some algae, or some sedimentation. Test it. But defin.itely aerate it before usng.

I am a reefer on a buget and $6 worth of salt is $6 right?
