Method I use to prepair water.
I have a RO
unit that I use to make up my water. I have two 30 gal
trashcans in the basement. 1 is for freshwater and 1 is for saltwater mixing and storage.
For the freshwater one its real simple i just fill it with RO
water and ut a lid on it for later use. For saltwater one I fill it with RO
water then i drop in a heater and powerhead. Get the water up to tank temp and then i slowly sift in salt mix till I have added enough salt to bring the water up to a SG
of 1.025. Now I let that sit till I need to use it but for at least a minimum of 24 hours.
Recently I have been doing weekly water changes of 5 gal
on my 20, 5 gal
on the 45 and 10-15 gal
on the 80.
