and bought water. Well I said the hell with that I can Mix water and salt and read and gravity meter! So I did, but know one ever told me that I needed to mix it for that long or heat it during the process. I did know not to just mix it and dump it, but I figured that once it had disoulved for a good two hours that it would be fine.....Guess not?
So I sold my extra PC
light fixture and I'm going to buy a extra powerhead and heater for mixing water for at least 8-12 hours.
Get in a hurry and kill and learn I guess!
