Mixing Mrs. Wages Pickling Lime

I have several Aiptasia under and on my LR and found a jar of Mrs. Wages. Can someone tell me how to mix it up and with what? I have the hypo container but not the needle...can I somehow put a stiff piece of airline on it? Or is there another way?

Any help is appreciated.

Also, will this hurt my fish or inverts if they nibble on it? I have a peppermint and 2 Cleaners/with eggs.


I wish I could walk my fish ....

Read my Sig for instructions. Most other animals will spit any back out once taste tested.

I take the needle off my syringe. The only issue I had when I used the airline tubing (for a better angle) was a little more of it came out. You can always mix more or less water for thicker/thinner solutions.
I didn't have any issues with my inverts trying to eat it, most of them just hid.
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!
